Hi Radhika.

It is perfectly fine to continue using simple icons. Just note that this set is not maintained by AWS. It is an open source set designed by Balázs Buri. On the other hand, the official AWS Architecture Icons are maintained by AWS so whenever there are new services or updates to the icons, they are periodically updated.

Feel free to use either one or even both!

I hope this helps.
