Hi Gowtham,

AMI = Amazon Machine Image, you can think of it as an base image contains operating system and other system software to use the amazon machine. You can think of it as just an virtual machine image.
Launch Configuration = It is a Template that is used for launching an auto-scaling group instance of aws ec2. here we create a aws ec2 instance configuration with cpu/memory/storage, AMI and keypair to be used for creating ec2 instance in asg group, so when a ec2 asg trigger will launch the ec2 instance with this configuration.
