21. Explain what is AMI?
AMI stands for Amazon Machine Image.  It’s a template that provides the information (an operating system, an application server and applications) required to launch an instance, which is a copy of the AMI running as a virtual server in the cloud.  You can launch instances from as many different AMIs as you need.

22. Mention what is the relation between an instance and AMI?
From a single AMI, you can launch multiple types of instances.  An instance type defines the hardware of the host computer used for your instance. Each instance type provides different compute and memory capabilities.  Once you launch an instance, it looks like a traditional host, and we can interact with it as we would with any computer.

A template for the root volume for the instance
Launch permissions decide which AWS accounts can avail the AMI to launch instances
