Christopher Merwin

very the much question. Great. for Thanks taking

some seeing, to the products about what with why are particular you are reasons you Thanks. are enterprise Can which with So, you are non-infrastructure competition? you And customers I segment? those of hearing that about winning that your ask particular resonating are of accounts. to the the of relative from some just in talk in traction about wanted

Olivier Pomel

in not there is APM with - or logs the are cases a scale. infrastructure products, attach There going that more land and more typically friction breakdown in be had look, in two enterprise the same very infrastructure will rates it see notable at to and in to going a majority the difference So, and in APM. of there. we as the the is Though, we categories is The other right? we of bit or is adopting

So multiple that to logs that over they from higher to day adopt for than be - are are the they both dollars for dollar typically going are adopt customers even grow are customers going APM, though use products, but time. to one going

the So on growth there longer APM, might be example. for a fuse on

Christopher Merwin

And pricing. Great. on just a follow-up quick then

You, a lot that with now, logs mechanism in competitors pricing market be obviously, that put together. trying you new replicate a to came are the seems broader the up resonating for products and to guess, the have I of

lot sensitivity to talk for are when less is there and have around on the are you therefore, So functionality you much they just to price how a very sensitivity customers, of more you focused products? or the charging

Olivier Pomel

so real two you have it. the much over on two Well, one the the customers the sensitive of itself, know, are value they is but price is as things: is there not and control

what So give we get all can that, it. with controls to - the way want the make of all our the we is of align work to for customers, they pay so pricing to value all our they product the

what So want with where agreement like controls that you for customers being scale. have end mentioned and pricing have on log and that don't we prisoners is make the we up have have that at side to what products, don't APM infrastructure they it of sure we a where and monitoring versions of have also done

from Your Brad of the comes line next Credit Suisse. of Zelnick question

Your line open. now is

Brad Zelnick

wanted success what on the and mainly congratulations market? logging Olivier, My could you, competitive you public competing you you for who especially the very compete against. Perhaps and for enterprise impressive That both on-premise very results, that around dynamic touch business Excellent. specifically multi-products to are shared have touch I so Thanks first the And in seeing much environment and on the you if for you metrics of on would specifically helpful. question how be sort spans in logging? are adoption.

Olivier Pomel

higher So, APM being say, equal footing see the logging today, large product product I in on we second take give adopted the as is environment the with this from amount enterprises. there in it great day again or friction fast very less also is growing a it a because are those fast environments submit of is to of because one, growing product adoption dollar from data very lot is typically would and themselves.

enterprises In everybody competitive that. to though, customers cases, in to Even don't environments have most large knows those a have in dynamics, terms Splunk, of cloud going the with. some they most vendor are all anything start have other logging on-prem, the so

a fact Splunk in adopting a a looks altogether in have platform - them some like lot is it they environments. the of on-prem not And different

our environment So that strategy. before and to go in is is typically are we try and clouds. well-established public next-generation see, we on-prem don't what That replace the private we

Brad Zelnick

pricing And the in in you Olivier. to had market months? reference follow-up Thanks, Does rates that to that, the you seeing? a win now number changes that dynamic pricing any changes the are have mentioned, just seen a any competitor that that competitive and in change they of for in you have the way effect maybe for you

Olivier Pomel

was the last is the The commented same changes feel end. we it we in is quarter as our situation on. on There that could no exactly

Brad Zelnick

right. Very Thank you helpful. much. All so


question comes next from Markets. Your the line Capital of of Hedberg RBC Matt

open. Your line is now

Matthew Swanson

Could of ago Matt. couple kind for of specifically? a weeks for really makes talk do can Matt Datadog a actually little is you in Olivier, This out you bit things Thanks. for a positioned put interesting about Swanson the case And impacts the less, report growth strong how server then the it this be to really invest you to a trend technology. maybe more of on it? state

Olivier Pomel


bit, To then continuum like less. and step package moved investing we your last answer To infrastructure way next when the stage stable to a had little this we were what are server a was static in definitely run. back go of is hardware the very we supporting us question they on for XX evolution look So and years first, infrastructure type heavily at VMware being anywhere. and VMs of part ago, is you to the in

were sorry. go cloud that smaller that containers were basically Then that containers then are could VMs, - every every second. up that go you are less functions And instances millisecond, up had cloud you instances microsecond. had done and that up VMs had and that this smaller you that server could go down, and basically Then every select smaller down smaller

that all that are components up from lots and lots statically lots stat big one basically being So, things combined of - moving that and down and tiny is lots very and and of to lots that and coming few different ways. in a goes keep continuum being

there that that run of see to we the the is time really run the the the observability So is that toward way it, a happening time. terms understanding provide shift from in of value goes of actually

are the our doing is of more us, what think and for machines value can experience us. customers, solve to more complexity, are the better the the in what it of understand is our make changing manage it the the the and and problem machines keep doing the it that manage we and people complexity So creates the for sure job end for end this in

So it that a favor. in the we market our definitely think development tilts is

Matthew Swanson

have another about kind then, Thanks. that continue some helpful. can feels year is but of accidentally this those it is during you investments investments if are XXXX, the levers And see we during when you you really the up thinking of just ramp as talk we quarters David, line? profitable, or into on to describe quarter That about outperformance top like to

David Obstler


I think that been last line, has a is bottom of outperformance hiring to the with to the what has we going do which time, plans. is it said lot

case extent the those the are hiring outperforming. in R&D conservative would most We we we hire in quarter. the second to pull of some can of can do a and more quickly, is levers change sales. on marketing be more or the to then to levers been based more in And then, and marketing a are planning dollars to trade a are The the essentially shows, have pull little we

Matthew Swanson

Thanks time. right. the All for

that wondering, the for products introducing, I describe their you these understand to how Good just are and products. ability afternoon. your force, question. appropriately Thanks sales you taking the and given I proliferation was of new maturity would mean, just my sell

Olivier Pomel

a great is question. That Yes.

sure knows most the bulk everything also sell we - us the we In can investment the So which of the enabling a place. sales in would sales land force hard situations, area say, taking the a part customer, everybody I is that for when bigger is that of though, and job making is where now.

very, And the very, for same and and are platform. logs of APM, with to fit understand customers not has they fully that the be that which land from which We pain customers is infrastructure well when then, expect part marquee day one also cloud. very feeling monitoring, very, great are deploying the the

So challenge makes customer. for not sure sales a can of lot in the there a that there and in is way making training present the we of terms force sense everything

Your Blair. line William Suri of Bhavan of next comes from question the

Your now line open. is

Bhavan Suri

Hey, guys.

and something my an me a for strategic right. think just to more platform Let about data start the much sort I with congratulations, my as echo whole, guess, question. here, there taking is underlying of elements, when you thanks

continuous DevOps could ops is which is step, going about and all you capturing the side, to So that we have love the management. and all all of challenges is, right? what quit as ops side about data think how guys data and is guess, plays really three how I think your I flows do? next about there the roadmap guys capturing product integration, and I element five integrating next hey, as how there appointment, we and sort you the there database delve software one and think their the and is to or try And always of the together. dev understand data opportunity And over, DevOps relational to data that the into say, do of that are out into think is years? you to with we more about how CICD then approaching to are and is, dev fields would develop one the the where So I do continuous

Olivier Pomel

production. doesn't to the that or and the solving in an the the application to code complexity the all complexity are the of wall problem business you in for or application or remediation So tasks between trace source actually what engineers our - and wall stop writing, the going take of or that the to product keep happening It of logs business at our output actually need various the production. when covers for is customers, it everything place ID start problem infrastructure

recover footprint goes So time that really that of platform possible much the we by, to of extend as as as space.

we product it running and the is bridging the example, gap in is developers a between the write because code production. is announced profiling for very that step actually what So, another toward interesting

about differentiated we even a also fairly product yet. it not are a approach had we it, it, is very for excited we are though to actually charging And

are the machines see between value do and possible end-to-end broad we between the as having way as what the the coverage doing. of So all developers

Bhavan Suri

then helpful. gap the gap? say some that to idea and still in other CICD bridges that market, be than guys, but doing else. for people development real love between or a implementation is the and to lot data not? player, time would given think the what would anyone at I gap should of of you it to easier how that that exist respond out be the point figure a the and once I Olivier, players the like You and just integration - have and and the bridge model that you feels it obviously,

Olivier Pomel

makes keep Yes. That think is when we why what is think the why why environments, we is valuable of that, because sets not small optimistic is the we opportunity of that that mean, you everywhere, in I large idea. are That investing, is you so about is very future. the there from us we machines we deployed because it if to see deployed everywhere. is we infrastructure tell working. or started everywhere. the deployed we We just need to a Therefore,

day. what teams bridge were more used between and cover every and engineer the in of that so then, program to of easy the way used to add be their contact the combination us space. keep of the middle gives filling design by customer, more is can stuff gaps the of single by that we with the the and actually success gap deployed everyone everywhere, very And and we every adopt, And or different product because

of as is mentioned, do, very obviously, which to tons a we value So, it space, program can large lot tons mean, is you means a and there there I is provide.

Bhavan Suri

more to the less your side. but vertical Thank think just I tactical a how you. Got space, there, verticalization it mean, Obviously, love listen you the approach vertical and it, markets? on matters got how guys I have probably follow-up it. you about verticalization quick matters, in now

Olivier Pomel


there are we is we opportunity verticalization. of not very concerned are yet as the terms far Right in think, as now, I horizontal.

be something also are bit verticalizing. with of might I that product to more categories, sense, along today set the cloud in expand our think, make all into we really maybe we is further what with not current migration, might customers when that is but are also we data. the sense. a more Maybe different make when might specific product, something little doing that are that That

Bhavan Suri

my guys, Got you for question, it. taking Appreciate it. Thank and congrats again.

Olivier Pomel
