"AWS is a set of services that form Amazons IaaS offering. These can be used individually or integrated to form a coherent whole. EC2 is one of the services that make up AWS – probably the most important one."

EC2 is one of the  service that makes up Amazon Web Services (AWS).  EC2 Stands for Elastic Compute Cloud and is a web service that's designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier by giving you control of your computing resource .  Check the video on "What is Amazon Web Services?" here http://aws.amazon.com/getting-started/
