If you're just using AWS for EC2 then you're probably better off with another provider, but I think the key advantage AWS has is in the 'WS' part of their name.

Cloudwatch, SQS, SNS, Dynamo, S3 etc offer good managed services that you can plug into your applications/systems with not that much effort - and crucially very little OPS needed.
