What is Amazon Web Services

I've been approached with a  possible gig and the client is asking whether or not I have any experience with Amazon Web Services.

I don't.

But when I go out to their website, it's hard not to feel like I'm looking at a web service. I see "server," I see "cloud..."

My question is this: Does Amazon Web Services represent a discipline in and of itself, or is it merely what it appears to be: An Internet Service Provider?

Thanks, strivoli. I read through the article you recommended as well as some others that are sitting on amazon's website, but would you know off hand if what they're offering is recognized as a discipline in and of itself? I've got a potential client that's asking me about experience with AWS and while I've no trouble in being transparent in telling them "No," I want to encourage them to not recognize that as a dealbreaker, provided I'm accurately processing this as a hosting service and not another computer language.

So, is this like learning a new syntax, or is it just getting comfortable with their stuff like I might do with godaddy or Network Solutions?

That's what I was thinking, but I wanted to hear it from someone with a mind greater than my own. Thanks, friend!
