now is line Your open.

Sanjit Singh

a thank impressive guess in about what of assuming to of stabilize the question with that to framing respect sort a you I And you the business us or context how taking in helpful? to David, guidance terms some to see the for talk were the guidance usage in you're you I that results framing quarter is, comment Yeah, particularly give in some with trends then, and that If the back the you're be would some these verticals? bit as slower these some you the a back questions improve little worsen? or half progressed, start some sense the sort when and did QX? trends of July, wanted on in super of the that? could first half, XX% seeing are on did terms it of of seeing give of just you're the trends you QX with really of And us you respect in and can growth. of it, the QX Is how guide. give

Olivier Pomel


and in growth June. with usage late maybe start start did April, I'll that we saw in we the So linearity. We May mentioned. viability the that really And see

some say some of we trends, remain growth an But noisiness seeing types the of we we but fact this historically. still in bit To and is of what as in have what there. did of - did COVID, ones our got that happened cloud have - the I we containers, a that in that term growth as was all just, net or a fully others what those I we by more And you getting we're which of are than that at while macro indicative this that products, of answer if and quarter. to a I continued is for conservative is for the thinking we're few saw improvement about for should see proceeding migration some host instances maybe as of the that in valuations, a customers the David pullback of some seen really think the say, would deeper into but sharp short cloud it's did volume growth, customers time. the data talk our you're especially still ahead APM, But say and positive is for certain more So should slower a we noise. question underpinned we not uncertainty. before. more There's also, see outlook and is should because going see that of healthy July, component, seen it we the terms I bit. logs on have little

that? we bit be that do on and want more comment David, careful. you a want it So to derisk bit little to a

David Obstler

macro seen we've uncertainty. be have the the what the quarters. and we note Yeah. raise more And would can't maintain as reason know, confident and as was that growth about raise QX, given it is look you I that into the our we that conservative organic other where On lower happens using philosophy. metrics the that if been and passed through lower, always to conservative than continue macro you historically is done we beat guidance percentage guidance, the here in in the for than uncertainty of by previous from have at

some would using to that, I guidance. assumptions that the quite been incremental there, But that we've everybody take lower we put than this. were are conservatism into say So conservative there I'd in if remind give past you when want always

Sanjit Singh

the And helpful. of lower one that could which like super the that's just context. comment in slightly APM, quick on you volume-based on products understand I more all logs host-based if pricing. I'm appreciate me may complete on sneak products question. though, sense. makes some I With one Olivier, why be usage. based if fully sort I like That's the I'm think see a wrong, little Because confused there. correct might primarily on deceleration seeing I

side like two on comments in how terms cost -- in side of parts of the terms you're log trends any portfolio? usage of seeing some So the of those the across APM versus

Olivier Pomel

great a question. That's

part So is for of like host-based - is APM, it and there's part actually part it of logs, APM of traffic-based. that is looks is APM which

control the spend show recent data this than do more, the they And customers. these there. generative can have to some APM of you to little growing, And and would parts want these healthily, it basically part of levers actually If have growth. customers which - your growing can you analytics run you for on It's seen retention retention, the we've reduce thing logs. longer but data, both slower quarters bit that's with I still can on in say, you still were but slower like types are certain a behaves other same

Sanjit Singh

Makes I total it. very sense. got you much. Thank


you. Thank

from from comes Raimo question next Barclays. Our Lenschow

is open. line Your now

Raimo Lenschow

new I of Thank name, you. on that stay version its subject, Meith [ph] Can Olivier. The my

need log So is not side are if to I different impacted use like if infrastructure my and much not how and need I is as you a the as you you say like if are work pattern thinking as on people infrastructure because to monitor or I'm volumes APM applications infrastructure. you more much monitor that my Like think with -- part? you, is important as or of - impacted there

help the us like then -- maybe one bit little understand And I just there? follow-up. I'm So a have differences

Olivier Pomel

short-term business you we customers in No, we bit have them levers seen slow their that's customers what it's we us, consumer and they example. those anything cases, were these is APM, down. That's customers to the in several delivery, that growing XX%, - for mentioned little if us, us and naturally, have One they're already equivalent are to discretionary themselves using In really, that their to we've volume-based. But small part into very break natural. small do are buckets. XX% for that that's a also very then been, - that's our always with in optimize just point. have would this only at three spend is of a too part actually pay of have a like business, customer cater and customers. and we We're diversified, to are us our uses, bucket if now that word logs a more word customer What I mean, lot to seeing to

uncertainty you I a he have us. say And The a more series little second they bucket can see spend in would future. with don't the is customers bit

all we what they time has again. because might quarter, we've every in this the example. do or What logs, of but some they happens mean their that expenses. they maybe you same mandate goes looking then a for closely optimize a and then whoever They're bunched and be So those same events. they all where their at is I challenged find to see in optimize bit at they're And businesses close. do said need look typically before, more today, that cycles again new. something every optimization. in through macro the go we is little like through you for not they're is CFO find pretty times same some And customer just looking much see customers the going for can can to leaky not faucets those And

it some seeing bucket in that we we're see on out not is this the seen beginning we third But call comparable the that wanted we've there. data, of in in still, COVID. so of... And or So the again, to call. Then of breadth to at the what magnitude

Raimo Lenschow

Go Sorry. ahead...

Olivier Pomel

the to deliver promised had finish it. buckets, three three. I I'll you Just

The are less the The third growing year the slowed smaller spend, we case, us. are have a ones larger on customers down more basically this lesser than mean bucket larger is They slowly growing as haven't. than that $XXX,XXX before. which bit actually ones. ones while were They're little a in they

David Obstler

if data logs, parts indexing. other - pricing, Just after it's that like there's you'll see want and related that are as to clarify, in when APM our on look related Oli are to are host-based ingestion the call website, that that you mentioned, but

so what and through experience that which was the use to didn't the the of also is much And but and a saying both where of we indexing APM we're with both tweak variability. ability part of of variability, part part, more saw logs, the ingestion the infrastructure a is the data as but that APM infrastructure

Raimo Lenschow

thought impacted. And the follow-up kind Consumer thing if then of about sounds Perfect. first sure as in it the the discretionary you about, half. think is second like implications have the downturn and that about Okay. thought gets you for I'm you the

to Is supply kind that like also go how next, little fashion newer you of second or comes were BPG more food you companies. the Thank bit, the kind think when about something it do How the seems a tech comes half? So think you. you that do about for delivery next. of mentioned you retail chain? buffering that anticipate You which is through

Olivier Pomel


diversified. very we're So

in revenue. our particular probably say, So to terms also, that would part part or start have. of other the following in more we the we them verticals - of actually of industry migration we in consumer covers And customers, have than native I the no of our that of in discretionary large very cloud with, they are those cloud actually

So looked that guidance. we that into when consideration all our came at

Raimo Lenschow

Okay, perfect. Thank you.


you. Thank

next from Sachs. comes Kash Our from question Rangan Goldman

Kash Rangan

Yeah. I Raimo’s well. can pronounce perfectly name

So, Thanks question you. here. thank giving me ask chance for to

I growth sequential context growth. growth, it. much curious They had on us they your you with good basis. sure whatever I'm put CRPO see And we AWS I help call time, at reconcile and you backlog backlog How uncertain business. are want the So do there did when you an larger look growth specific up how to that what's your basis, But pertain happening if I'm look during growth, Azure, year-over-year company that at of can bookings, things think mean, whatnot. you in to of a even hyperscalers. tremendous the

So of exposure is so, to there backlog. at teens did Maybe discretionary. way out, Maybe of is could the the able look rest or the parse you to to the you if a up it's how different were And that specific Datadog? business percentage quantify hyperscalers high rest the put that XX% to the business. kind something there consumer relative to if how of

mind. to you I'm of So trying just an bridge so Thank don't you if performance versus cloud at much. public Datadog level, the aggregate the

Olivier Pomel


you the on start give I'll David more maybe on color the can with So rapid bookings then trends hyperscalers and the part.

So in did than the better we a QX, lot hyperscalers.

them we're basis. And than actually all decelerated So they've faster growing more of in we've a lot than done relative combined.

larger than a commanding Like we ratio last the there. So are were quarter. feel good we we revenue the portion cloud of actually about

In in don't terms leading success the for that. business the terms to forward, think go see of indicators specifically trends, we But good of us. - the are for of hyperscalers we looking I that of guide all have

So we're action hiring the very seeing half added the the and new great product success done seeing to well going with everything call

So of for to more us want a which do bit a leads color What necessarily don't conservative. of of terms gap we all the of the is looking terms have in be David, of in that to more growth, little noise it? the part little you more have the data we good. is on booking future in give

David Obstler


and is is in remember, that the RPO everybody the for ARR they whole look with expand remind getting that the ARR that going the metric. to growth you land of So and we get used variability over at increased we start look scale on on go way at the there's the And this business by to revenues. They up time, model. mentioned the billings that that, Because to average, best through, growth certain they commit. point growth. has where and go when clients, an the net-net, been our a towards that Again,

use get of a it whether you - take commitment. is bill times pure is or doesn't or timing goes on-demand which the because plus XX, an linearity, new a XX%, that is that XX% bill a when multiply You that and previous and the altered either by commitment out in

be us. to going analysts it. with it's understand investors So that We look always noisy at and

of revenue think that, give over we on only that the to up to I was the year, the and that in it some revenues. very the the basically of in in back have half moved quarter quarter of this pretty everybody and And that the timing to to comes close that, but were variable in growth so drivers second XXs, really we it said try effect we -- second on much So business. there first the the the Because the remind to but quarter first there gets first is relative Why? put of time color down, our billing remind just doesn't everybody. growth, quarter

Olivier Pomel

business And And to actually this, like manage us about billings. just aligns customers. our to because very don't we it theoretically, be that's clear with the

we land manage we're into expanded. it for turns we - typically and it When heavily to What we very land, is us. So which revenue pretty directly this means small. usage, land

expansion expand their we're of really next has that change the going customers. doesn't It So on we really this quarter, it to small doesn't growth quarter that really doesn't matter billings. that a because And we doesn't usage change to them. change from actually profile. revenue the impact when whether see do really It typically

manage see there, we it. noise business so we to And and some the don't

a are inversion with you're you this of Many half? Can seeing with And an more SMB companies enterprise. seeing back view SMB You're large. conservative think what's kind the not you are happening explain at weakness and in in large inversion? why you embedding

David Obstler

inversion. an not Yes,

we X,XXX to a that of where a you're which or employees enterprise act more a et in had more was And That or substantial remember X,XXX up. look segments, differently two, a it in an been mentality. was or X,XXX, think is SMB, had. areas less, X,XXX there whether mid-market costs. what we where certain expansion, of us was what was we than is What customers at for SMB not consumer, -- saw saying, and what it's cost the conservative larger regardless said mid-market said did and happened I cetera, SMB we see did they smaller had -- we not enterprise

that in terms year, assume don't we wasn't But the fell determinations. guide the were half that those lower all those the sectors So organic and have in we it was growth we know. always, And what out. And of things. we wasn't for us we second might historically Europe, expect. It it SMB than in of the

inversion spend the what the what industry. happened of think and an driver wrong this SMB the it whether of the because thing mid-market -- look enterprise, So was level cost the what but is I was was not or

Olivier Pomel

- customers. is it see, deliver We're critical to we to we're critically value. way One important, our

more be to them have We efficient.

going on spending bit look the more whatever see the that So money, savings of the of larger the on there's us. and us, you in earlier, -- can customer whether is, levels But we're customers not And and for block. spend size chopping the mentioned they're where to of with as general, some optimize, they're especially product. going volume-based always a little at with spend they're a to we

David Obstler

retention at gross way, enterprise. the stayed SMB, by same all And the the and different levels, mid-market

from comes Our Mizuho. next Gregg Moskowitz question from

line Your now is open.

Gregg Moskowitz

to Okay, this in and for Datadog they questions of you're pricing commentary frequently totally environment? thank would be Oli, lot levels speaking, about on raising are customers, the a your taking more that you helpful. Any speaking questions.

Olivier Pomel

want deal, a because products. think from to to be want always a be CFOs use They more optimistic They and of situations more in with it's our wants And like be and conservative. this more truer to so I true. problem mandate true, - even to have want going it'd for were them. that's the there's our product. of that's So to actually been always better buy but They a -- we Everybody conversion very customers where them. more more

anecdotally, see very with customers, So but we what we're bullish. from --

Gregg Moskowitz

And interesting on wondering you it. of over there or the if consolidation script, examples then I'm but Datadog? so, Got on trajectory in months has your look or you any whether Okay. to six change been not past the back some touched were customer to or standardization

Olivier Pomel

see But their it. -- the the think, we is what It's software do. of by macro the majority keep on consolidating So customers legacy now prolonged to we seeing if there market, and not might on like we save really us. we issues and again, in to of more more still consolidation want more try

what the do majority definitely happen. not but see not that's as today. that That's we of So of what Again, that's think we that projections our might any possibility. on, we we base a something

Olivier Pomel

simply but your to the the what's They exposure is, $X,XXX. difference same Probably not. have time say,

If And you're time with a much sell we what $XXX,XXX. that's see to larger it's worth your optimizations. those customer,

Mike Cikos

adoption plus time first the then deciding smaller parse implication from sequentially out me help follow-up think the at will multiproduct be helpful. could I product from from XX% actually And this look Understood. declined seen you for take is later date? there trends pay if if would -- to metric, your your customers, the that your Is or I that I another at you for again, a the is we've module two product starting customers had to that now XX%. you are And adoption

Peter Weed

rationalization that to in on. that taking actually at it's with cloud pricing Datadog or managing pulled Datadog? two customers going as even into overall cloud see the Datadog part doing some a see my Or Datadog. interested those whether that a as of and effect may that's that happens topology broader just to their And you just is be on focus. that It splash the you pulls customers not cloud are rationalization. of Help cost Thank and it something is targeted more for things, that gets me or unpack question. broader trying unpack, focused I'm directly down are

Olivier Pomel

cost It's focused just their on structure.

layoffs. optimize. So seen decreasing see and a in they line can and they to heat number of up again, that do everyone up order decreasing their number And expenses they -- least had they you've what a customers by at

going structure. we're cost that are Their they're structures core So their after cost there and workforce -- hard part that. their of

think -- to top because customers both them it's That to and critical, like certain were one us of I we a those a a use their lot will, vendors. of means, their good that tied trajectory. thing own those who of for very are, extent, us

Peter Weed


and that So not is Datadog a line of... item on necessarily focused just on a you're splash saying very this effect as

Olivier Pomel

know they're they're save They're trying money a these those, cloud on guarantee working spending spend. customers on cloud that saying their some I'm also what providers also And in spending helping that. we for they're are money let's more lot focusing And money. money of the you, of I to there. No, with spending on. with

We they And make we side successful in like them. our to long-term and work we I providers with to what been want so And aligning successful in a the them what of there. customers involved to the spend can most their cloud is want have. on this, the of want have have we help

David Obstler

just at real-time monitoring cost of on and on their it you when at than rationalize other that at but said, more. we looking how experience if as newspapers, see less things structure, you look things feel there that you're look are clients, been application Datadog, opportunities, Datadog is And to the the read stickiness important - retention, given you businesses. focused your has focused gross other it's the generally, and Now But the what you that for across. to did our we you is

Peter Weed

other one sense. may. you Yes. Yes. No, if no, last that And makes question,

you to see some with those of think alluded there improvements kind of how may of even that In about of type caution the July quarters of thing. been juxtaposed some have contracts momentum and them I this Can comment timings some and you're over some some that on some talking of you closing the other you improvements and and have contracts. of to. in

Olivier Pomel

were in The the the contracts. a is which think closings quite one were the not fairly the improvements I contracts about usage mentioned closing everything and about July from selling else. trends, and I force

where pipeline, -- -- very we've sell with which we happy seen commented about what and we're side the in great also usage. this We July, a again, but is

David Obstler

bill We because as the is is or this ARR timing Yes, to positive, -- when to was not to try point I some time. on it's commitment calls when differences is. quarter. like out they're think out over correlated in it always been Every if billing the is not goes the call, revenues there -- as the

when we that less, that plus everybody not everybody we major drives remind the we just all remind that's And not we on - model going company. it. And it's minus. when and read the said every to to of want we I line top growth want plus, almost into the earnings it's to anything that variability time everybody you're because every remind call, - that So the metric and think that to of have land-expand

Peter Weed

a in kind utilization, I turn do think mentioning revenue and additional should positive But of it you're if future mean, trajectory, got see... I you've you periods, into Sure.

Olivier Pomel

actually same. Like the others no there's delay billings. it's period. a there and the revenue two was - in between are same There's we two. Usage - But those now is one delay were

Peter Weed

at going I revenue what How in is, guess July, are the you seeing I'm period. that and into you if forward... positive getting that trajectory it will Yes, turn see in

David Obstler

a unlike growth yes, was growth. We had Yes. - telling usage and in we're the -- But places that a in we're but that better and second on basically we're what usage we lot marginal, little What we was formative usage there in that you not is strong here. telling there we're making had where COVID the that pockets hope see a is what We're we're market reporting in helpful we growth, July, saw saying calling in saying average, we most of quarter. the way.

So yes...
