The growth in its total customer count is driven in large part by its Database as a Service Atlas, which had over 15,400 customers at the end of the quarter compared to over 11,400 a year ago. Driven by its deeper integration with Google Cloud Platform, Atlas grew over 80% and now represents 41% of total revenue, compared to 32% a year ago.

The company ended the quarter with 751 customers with at least $100,000 in ARR and annualized MRR, up from 557 a year ago. It had 62 customers with at least $1 million in ARR and annualized MRR, up from 39 a year ago.
