My understanding is that removing the images from the vendors market places is to make the images less easy discoverable and to discourage users from spinning new instances from an old image type. I don’t know the exact details for AWS but my guess is those AMI IDs will NOT remain indefinitely but at least longer.
Also be aware that we will release Debian Buster hopefully in the middle of next year. Maybe it is time to switch away from Debian Jessie at one point... Rather sooner than later...
Thank you... so the amis themselves should remain indefinitely?

>From my understanding Noah only removed the links from the market place, but did not remove the images from the storage. This means by knowing the image AMI IDs you should still be able to rebuild your images on top of our Debian images.
