This past Monday, if you are subscribed to TKU release announcements, you saw that July is our first month of our new cadence for TKU release. As a reminder to the timing changes, the TKU and OSU releases wll be made available on EPD on the first Wednesday of the month. SaaS customers on BMC Helix Discovery will have the latest TKU applied to their Development environment on the first Wednesday of the month and their Production environment on the second Wednesday of the month.
We have a lot of exciting new content to announce and the details can be found on the July 2019 TKU release page. Highlights include several new patterns for software products, enhancements to existing software patterns, and general bug fixes. In this latest TKU release, we have included 29 new network device definitions.
If you are discovering cloud resources, we have introduced a new cloud inventory capability with essential information about those cloud services and in the July TKU we have started with roughly 15 new AWS products. In addition, we are still focused on providing deeper discovery on patterns for cloud services and we are now making that available for Amazon ElasticSearch and Amazon Elastic Container Services for Kubernetes (EKS).
The July TKU is certainly packed with a lot of good additions to the Discovery portfolio. We look forward to your feedback on what is advancing the impact of your Discovery data and what is missing and key that we can include in future TKU updates.
