Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Thank you, Jeff. Welcome, everyone, to our Q2 earnings call and greetings from this. I'm happy to report yet another strong quarter for JFrog as the adoption and demand momentum for our DevOps and security products continues. As we will share today, I'm pleased to see our strategic investments bear fruits.

In Q2, JFrog revenues exceeded the midpoint of our guidance by more than 3% for the second straight quarter. And we are excited to report that our strategic sales team, again, broke all-time records with multi-year, hybrid, full platform deals signed with some of the world's leading enterprises. Our second quarter revenue was $67.8 million, reflecting 39% growth year over year, compared to 41% reported in the previous quarter. Our cloud revenue grew by 68% year over year, compared to 63% reported in the previous quarter, demonstrating our cloud-first strategy and driven partly by continued growth in our cloud marketplace channels and customers' cloud migrations.

As for larger company deals in the quarter, the number of customers with ARR over $100,000, grew to 647, compared to 599 in the previous quarter, increased 56% year over year, and our trailing four quarters' net dollar retention grew to 132%, compared to 131% reported in the previous quarter. Our customers tell us that JFrog is a mission-critical piece in how they pull software from public hubs build, manage, secure, and distribute it to production. JFrog Artifactory serves their software organization as the single system of record, and we continue to see that JFrog is an infrastructure backbone and remains a cornerstone of our customer software delivery processes scale. Now, allow me to elaborate more about the teams that drove JFrog's success this quarter.

First, the scaling gap of the cloud, cloud migration, and cloud marketplace expansion. Second, the maturation and adoption of security solution in detect ops domain that covers the organization software supply chain. Third, the strong validation of the binary-centric platform, and fourth, our emerging success in DevOps for IoT and connected devices. Let's begin with the DevOps in the cloud.

In Q2, JFrog twice broke internal records for the largest deals in the history of our cloud and hybrid solutions. The enablers for these deals continue to be the growing demand for hybrid multi-cloud DevOp solution and the work of our teams to drive migrations while deepening the partnership with cloud marketplace vendors that enable simplified purchases and processes. For example, the now largest deal ever for JP Cloud came in Q2 via one of the world's largest travel and hospitality booking companies. In this strategic deal, the customer requires a holistic DevOps and SecOps SaaS solutions to expand their global binary distribution and reduce their infrastructure costs while simplifying the security policies of the software supply chain.

JFrog platform will support the customer's global scale, provide DevOps as a service to the thousands of developers and protect their millions of customers. In addition, we see robust cloud growth among our platform users. For example, the second major deal this quarter came from one of the world's largest financial institutions that migrated part of its IT assets to JFrog's Cloud, grew their adoption, and increased their annual spend by 67%. As these financial institutions transition toward a multi-cloud environment in the upcoming years, the hybrid deployment model will provide standardization across both cloud and self-managed solutions, allowing for integration and collaboration across development and release team.

As a long-standing customer, this company has grown from an initial deployment of Artifactory and expanded to security and distribution through the use of the JFrog platform. Now to our security pillar. Our investment in security keeps bearing fruit as we see an accelerating trend of companies turning to JFrog looking for a robust way to secure the software supply chain. In today's world, more and more hackers are targeting developers to gain access to an organization.

Companies are realizing that securing binaries is critical, acknowledging that using point solution without a holistic security approach continues to expose them to external vulnerabilities. For example, a large global technology hardware manufacturer turned to JFrog in Q2 to modernize its software supply chain security processes. In a competitive replacement, JFrog uniquely provides these new customers with highly available solutions, software distribution, and more. Understanding they also needed to scale security continuously with over 1,000 developers, they lacked a fully integrated solution to provide scanning and remediation path across the DevOps pipeline.

Now as a full platform customer that enjoys the integrated power of Artifactory and Xray, this company will be able to more securely automate its software delivery all the way to production in the cloud and on-premises. The continued pattern of full platform adoption also aligned with the market demand. In Q2, one of the world's largest integration and API platforms migrated from Sonatype Nexus to JFrog platform. As these customers attempted to scale with their existing setup, they required a cloud-based DevOps platform that offers an extensive variety of cloud-native support to speed up their internal development while protecting them against saner abilities.

The chose JFrog platform to support their need for a highly available, robust universal software package storage and distribution mechanism to trust the releases all the way to the edge. Finally, on to the next-gen DevOps announcement we have made in the IoT and connected devices business. JFrog keeps innovating and addressing DevOps big challenges. We introduced the world with the first binary repository that became the single source of record in the industry.

We expanded our solution by building a Secop composition analysis tool that became the standard in how software supply chain is being protected. And now we are addressing the next pain for development teams, which is updating software on the edge. Last May, at our user conference ramp-up, we announced and demonstrated JFrog Connect, a product combining JFrog DevOps platform capabilities with the technology of uplift, a company we acquired in Q3 of last year. We are already seeing early demand for the product in the enterprise and how it will drive broad platform expansion.

No other company provides a complete end-to-end DevOps and security flow all the way to connected devices. Today, over-the-air update solutions, are made by companies forced to build their own technology that doesn't connect to the CICD flow, making them insecure and flow. The market of software updates on devices takes DevOps beyond not just the data centers and the cloud, but all the way to the edge. We believe JFrog Connect is the next logical step in fulfilling the liquid software vision and it is now offered in the GA version.

At swampUP, we were proud to make additional announcements across our three core areas: DevOps, security, and IoT. In our core DevOps area, we were honored to share the swap-up stage with the tech lead of the Swift project at Apple, which is the new standard for iOS developers. Swift package management is moving from a source Fenwick approach to a binary-centric approach, and the team has worked closely with POC to develop the first enterprise-grade software package support for Swift in general Artifactory. Building on our solid foundation in JFrog Xray, we also announced new advanced capabilities for end-to-end software supply chain security.

This includes detecting malicious software packages, scanning the discover secrets such as API kids and passwords, and infrastructure as code security scanning to detect cloud security, misconfigurations before it's set up on the cloud. This was the most consequential set of security capabilities ever announced by JFrog. These new capabilities will be offered to customers as an additional package on top of our existing subscriptions beginning in late Q3. When we acquired Video last year, we committed to delivering integration in 2022.

The development and the introduction of our advanced security package demonstrate the execution of that promise. Finally, we announced integrations with ServiceNow and Microsoft teams that enhance Job offerings across marketplace and make Job solution to integrate it to fail. Both Microsoft and ServiceNow products need access to JFrog Artifactory as the repository that stores all binaries and enables full automation of the DevOps pipeline and to Xray, which secures them at all stages. For JFrog customers, these integrations will create a DevOps environment from developers all the way to one time with best-of-breed products that coexist and avoid vendor locking.

Before we turn to our financial review, I would like to address the macroeconomic changes the world is now experiencing. A downturn in the global economy requires companies to look at their business efficiency, product diversity cash management, and path to profitability. Our renewal rates in both on-prem and cloud have remained robust and continue to perform very well. In addition, our cloud revenues continue to see positive usage trends.

However, during the second quarter, we started seeing elongated sales cycles for large new business deals compared to trends we have seen in the past. We would also note that Asia Pacific, which is currently our smallest geographic region in terms of revenues has seen slower levels of DevOps adoption relative to our prior expectations. Given our customers' view of JFrog DevOps platform as a critical component to modernize their software supply chain, we anticipate only a small potential impact on overall customer usage. We acknowledge and have accounted for the current macroeconomic headwinds emerging globally in our guidance.

We are confident that JFrog is well-positioned to succeed. We believe JFrog continue to grow long-term revenue at 30% or greater, even as overall global IT budgets may be pressured during the second half of the year. With that, I would like to turn the call over to our CFO, Jacob Shulman, who will provide an in-depth recap of our quarterly results and update you on our outlook for both Q3 and full year 2022. Jacob?

Jacob Shulman -- Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, Shlomi, and good afternoon, everyone. During the second quarter, total revenues were $67.8 million, up 39% year over year. momentum in our cloud business continued with revenues of $19.2 million, up 68% year over year, driven by increased levels of customer usage and continued migration of customers from self-managed to SaaS. In the prior year's quarter, we had stated our cloud growth has bottomed.

In the fourth quarter since we have seen continued acceleration and customer adoption of our cloud solutions and JFrog DevOps platform delivered on our commitment to the market. While we are pleased to see this continued momentum, however, we would like to remind you that our cloud business is subject to variability. We continue to believe that the baseline growth rate for our cloud business is in mid-50% range with potential upside from increased customer usage as we saw in the first half of 2022. Self-managed revenues, often called on-prem were $48.6 million, up 31% year over year.

Our on-prem business continues to provide consistent growth on a year-over-year basis. but the level of growth has recently slowed as the majority of new customers continue to lend on the cloud and the trend of migration to cloud from the on-prem and adding hybrid solutions has accelerated. Our success in Q2 demonstrates the value of large enterprises in hybrid deployments. We continue to expect a portion of new customers will continue to land with our on-prem solutions first, but we recognize migration and new lands have been transitioning toward the cloud in the recent quarters.

Net all retention for the four trailing quarters was 132% and in line with our prior commentary. As of the quarter-end, we had 647 customers with ARR of over $100,000, up from 599 customers as of March 31, 2022, and up 56% from 415 customers at the end of the second quarter of 2021. In addition, we grew the number of over $1 million ARR customers again in the quarter, adding on in this quarter equaling to a total of 17, up 42% year over year. As we discussed in the past, adoption of the full platform is a key factor in the increasing size of our customers.

In Q2 of 2022, 36% of total revenue came from Enterprise Plus customers, up from 32% in Q2 of 2021. Now, let's review the income statement in more detail. Gross profit in the quarter was $56.8 million representing a gross margin of 83.7%, compared to 83.4% in the year-ago period. We expect gross margins to remain between 83% and 84% during the second half and trend toward 80% over the long term as cloud revenues become a greater portion of total revenue.

Operating expenses for the second quarter were $58.8 million or 87% of revenues, up from $39.6 million or 81% of revenues in the year-ago period. As we noted, the second quarter will be the low point of importability, as we enacted merit increases to employees, which caused a step up in spend in this quarter. We continue to invest strategically within R&D and build out our strategic sales and channel relationships. Non-GAAP operating loss in Q2 was $2 million or negative 3% operating margin compared to an operating income of $1 million or 2% operating margin in the year-ago period.

Non-GAAP net loss in the quarter was $2.2 million or a loss per share of $0.02 in based on approximately 99 million weighted average shares outstanding. Turning to the balance sheet and cash flow. We ended the quarter with $43.2 million in cash and short-term investments up from $427.7 million as of March 31, 2022. Cash flow from operations was $4 million in the quarter.

After taking into consideration capex, free cash flow was $3 million. We continue to remain preshow positive and have been so in every quarter since becoming a publicly traded company. We remain committed to accelerating our free cash flow margin toward our long-term target of 30%. Before we turn to guidance, I wanted to ask some comments on our view about the potential impact of global macroeconomic headwinds.

Despite the macroeconomic headwinds, we are confident that the business will grow 30% or greater this year and beyond. However, as Shlomi mentioned, we do acknowledge the changes in some geographies and slowdown in enterprise new deals approval cycle and delivered financially prudent to take additional levels of conservatism as a precautionary measure to reflect the macro impact. We also continue to be committed to our goal will be in breakeven for the fiscal year 2022. Therefore, in order to stay aligned with our guidance, we have accelerated initiatives to improve our operational efficiencies.

For Q3, we expect revenue to be between $70.5 million to $71.5 million with non-GAAP operating profit between negative $0.5 million to positive $0.5 million and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of negative $0.01 to positive $0.01, assuming a share count of approximately of 106 million shares. For the full year of 2022, we are slightly increasing our revenue guidance to the range between $278.5 million and $280.5 million. Non-GAAP operating income is expected to be breakeven between negative $1 million to positive $1 million and non-GAAP earnings per diluted share of negative $0.01 to positive $0.01 and assuming a share count of approximately 107 million shares. Now, let me turn the call back to Shlomi for some closing remarks before we take your questions.

Shlomi?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Thank you, Jacob, and Happy Birthday, my friend. And thank you, my team, JFrog employees for your steadfast dedication and high standards. Your passion leads to this success. Again, we saw that our strategic investment, platform expansion, and end-to-end DevOps coverage aligned with the growing market demand.

Second quarter numbers show that JP is positioned well to keep the growth momentum while staying an efficient business financially. I want to thank you all for your attendance today. May the FROG be with you. And now, we'll take your questions.

Operator?

Questions & Answers:


Operator

Thank you. [Operator instructions] Our first question comes from Sanjit Singh of Morgan Stanley. Your line is open.

Sanjit Singh -- Morgan Stanley -- Analyst

Thank you so much for taking the call. Congrats on Q2. I guess I want to start the conversation around the confidence for sustaining 30% growth. Really appreciated the sort of thinking on and the commentary on what you're seeing in the macro and some of the longer gaming sales cycles.

But if we break it down into the drivers for 30% growth, what gives you that confidence that in a potentially tougher budget environment, you'll continue to sustain that level of growth?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Thank you for your question. Thank you for joining us today. This is Shlomi. Regarding the macro economy changes that we are seeing as detailed in the script, we are seeing actually an increased demand for our cloud solution, more usage in the cloud coming from new customers and existing customers.

So, the trend of the cloud growth is going on has started in the second quarter of 2021. What we also see in observing is some kind of slowdown on life cycles of big deal approval, especially when it comes to major deals, big deals, and a slowdown on some of the regions. So, we wanted to take some conservative approach with our guidelines, and these are the observations that we've seen I would add to that, Sanjit. First of all, we believe there is a lot of room of penetration for us in existing at.

Our expansion rates continue to be very attractive. And we see a lot of opportunities in our existing customers. For many of them, we continue to be mission-critical. So, in our discussions with the customers and how they plan their future deployment of develop we've seen a lot of opportunities for us to expand and maintain this revenue growth.

Sanjit Singh -- Morgan Stanley -- Analyst

That's very helpful. And they take up as well. Hopefully, you get the chance to do something earning -- something else on earnings calls, the next go around. My follow-up question, Shlomi, for you, is, as the market is moving more and more to cloud, if we call this as sort of the DevOps category, what are sort of the patterns that you're seeing from customers? How are they approaching the cloud decision, right? Because you guys own a couple of important pieces of the cycle.

There's other parts of the software release cycle that may be using other vendors. And so, when customers say, OK, I'm moving to the cloud, are they thinking about doing this in a sort of different approach than they did it on-prem and meaning in terms of consolidating the number of vendors? Or are they going with the best-of-breed approach? In your conversation with customers, how are they approaching the cloud architecture decision for this category?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yeah. That's a very good question. And I'm sure that all the DevOps providers are visits question. What we see in the market is split different categories.

First of all, most of the new lenders are starting to the cloud. This is where the new industry is going to less on-prem new customers. What we see in the enterprise, especially with the expansion of our customers is two movements, A, migrating to a hybrid environment. Nobody just switching on and switching off the on-prem solution.

So, a hybrid environment gives them the time to migrate IT assets one by the other, by region, or by team. And the third category those that are looking for multi-cloud solution, and then they will start with one cloud migration and then duplicated to a multi-cloud environment, multi-region environment. this will be a more fulfillment of the strategy of moving to the cloud. On all three categories pages, what we see is that migration to the cloud is not an easy move, especially retail infrastructure.

It's a heavy lifting, and I'm very happy to see the JFrog provide them with this long runway to take it step by step.

Sanjit Singh -- Morgan Stanley -- Analyst

Understood. Thank you so much for the color. Appreciate it.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Thank you again, Sanjit.

Operator

[Operator instructions] Our next question comes from Brad Reback of Stifel. Mr. Reback, your line is open.

Brad Reback -- Stifel Financial Corp. -- Analyst

Great. Can you hear me?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yeah, we can hear.

Brad Reback -- Stifel Financial Corp. -- Analyst

Great. So, a couple of quick questions. Swamy, as a customer migrates from on-prem to the cloud, can you give us a sense of the economic uplift you get from that?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yes. So, migration to the cloud, Brad, usually comes with an ARR growth. And what we see in the market that it's mainly come from data transfer. This is the one of the consumption units that we measure.

So, more data transfer in the cloud, more binary movements in the cloud between regions, between different deployments. The second thing that we've seen is that when you move your assets to the cloud and you save on headcount that you used to employ you now get JFrog as a service, DevOps as a service. You invest more in the asset and making sure that it's getting lot your developers. So, what we are seeing, as also reported in the script, that the ALR goals is also because of migration from a lower subscription to the full platform in the cloud.

And I would add to that, Brad, that many times, we see when customers transition to cloud, they also add additional capabilities because they maybe did not have sufficient mobile in-house to use the full DevOps platform. So, when we compare these migrations, we do see a range of upsells somewhere in the range between 20% to 80%. It really depends on the customer use case. For example, one of the largest deals that we closed this quarter we saw upsell of this large customer, 67% as one of top.

Brad Reback -- Stifel Financial Corp. -- Analyst

That's great. And then, Jacob, for you, your comment on efficiencies. Is that existing spend? Or does it also encompass slowing down hiring in the back half of the year? Thanks very much.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Brett, you broke up a bit. So, can you please repeat the question?

Brad Reback -- Stifel Financial Corp. -- Analyst

Sure. I hope you can hear sorry, I'm in a tough spot. The comment on efficiencies. Is that just slowing existing spend already? Or is it also a function of slowing hiring in the back half of the year?

Jacob Shulman -- Chief Financial Officer

Yeah. We will carefully review our hiring in strategic areas. And we obviously will continue to instill our efficiencies in other areas such as cloud efficiency and other projects. But the headcount is also the goal given that we just [Inaudible]

Brad Reback -- Stifel Financial Corp. -- Analyst

That's great. Thanks very much.

Operator

Thank you. Our next question comes from Mike Cikos of Needham and Company. Your line is open.

Mike Cikos -- Needham and Company -- Analyst

Thank you for taking the questions here and all the color. I did want to just expand on that last point, when we were talking about those efficiencies that you guys have previously discussed. Can you help us just by elaborating where are those efficiencies coming from? And have those been put in place at this point? Or is that still to come?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yes. So, in addition to a careful review of accounts, the additional efficiencies would be our view of our cloud efficiencies many of initiatives to improve our cost efficiency have already been in ways, and we are seeing our gross margins on our cloud business improving quarter to quarter. There is still a lot of room for us to continue to do and this is what we intend to do. We're also looking at different projects and obviously, we'll continue with highest ROI projects.

And we'll review carefully what the projects maybe needs to be postponed or even stopped.

Mike Cikos -- Needham and Company -- Analyst

And sorry, just to further elaborate on that, like if we're talking about the initiatives to improve cloud as an example. Like is that just you negotiating better rates just as you guys continue to build scale and volume? Or is it you're optimizing your own internal infrastructure? Like can you provide some more color?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Some of it is optimizing existing infrastructure. Some of it is maybe rearchitecturing some of the infrastructure that will generate significant efficiencies. So, it's a combination of different. I would add, Mike, that when we beat efficiency, obviously, we are focusing on two elements.

One, is the growth of the company is our commitment to end up the breakeven. So, headcount goals is something that we review. Our investment in our strategic features and the differentiators we create in the market is another thing, but also the relationship with the endos just like any other companies, we are opening up every contract and see if we can optimize it. Just like any other companies, we are opening up every contract and see if we can optimize it.

Mike Cikos -- Needham and Company -- Analyst

That's very helpful. I really appreciate the color there. And if I could just squeeze one more in. When you guys are talking about the, I guess, elongated sales cycles in the current macro.

I totally appreciate some of the challenges there that we've definitely heard from other companies we speak with. But can you help us think about -- is there a difference in those cycles when you look at North America or the U.S. versus other international markets or even between the expansions you're seeing with existing customers versus landing that new logo? Can you help parse that out for us?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yes, Mike. Great question. Listen, first of all, I have to admit that I'm excited to see those very big deals coming toward our direction. I think our strategic team going it quarter after quarter.

So, to be honest with you, those very big deals every quarter we break a record is also something that we learn about cycles of approval of this seven-digit deals. However, what we see on the mass usage on the mat expansion on the new customer deal, we see that if you lend with major build, let's say, a platform adoption and more. It requires C-level approval. This is new to the domain.

On the expansion, with customers, this is split between two. A, if you're moving to a new strategy, let's say that you're implementing a hybrid environment, and you're not just now renewing more and taking more of the on-prem assets but you're also subscribing to the cloud, then it requires also technology C-level approval and so on. So, overall, on big deals, we see longer cycles, both on the expansion and the new business. We don't see that impact on the smaller then.

Regarding the geopolitical question you had, what we see in EMEA is very similar to what we see in North America. We don't see any kind of headwinds coming from the geopolitical situation in Ukraine. Actually, EMEA responds to the economic changes as North America, as I mentioned before. And in APAC, we see that the adoption of DevOps, especially in the enterprise, especially migration to the cloud is taking longer than what we expected at the beginning of the year or late last year, but it's still happening, just a different cycle that has to do with the DevOps and technology adoption and migration.

Mike Cikos -- Needham and Company -- Analyst

That was all very, very helpful. I really appreciate the color, Shlomi. And I'll pass on my Happy Birth to you, Jacob, as well. Thank you, guys.

Jacob Shulman -- Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, Mike.

Operator

Thank you. Our next question comes from Jason Ader of William Blair. Your line is open.

Jason Ader -- William Blair -- Analyst

Yeah. Thank you. Jacob, my daughter's birthday today, too, so you're in good company. She's 21.

So, she can drink legally. I wanted to ask you about the security package, the event security package they announced. Maybe just elaborate a little bit on that and how it's how it's going to be priced, which subscriptions -- sort of which tiers it will be in? And maybe what kind of uplift do you think you could get from the advanced security packages?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Jason, this is Shlomi. I'll take this with the security, what we call the advanced security package will come, as mentioned, on top of the subscriptions that we offer so far. And this is the part of the foods that the integration of video technology, Vitam with the X-ray team created in the past years. If you remember, we talked about our strategic investment in security and what value can we bring to the world of software supply chain protection as the binary people.

This is very unique to the market. And we see a growing trend of hackers that are coming after developers. When hackers are coming on after developers, you need different capabilities, and this is the new package that we are releasing to the market. We shared it at swampUP.

Our customers and prospects were blown by it. We see the interest coming in the market as it is repaid folder and add to it the fact that we currently have one of the largest research team, information that we have about what is hacked already and storing in everybody's binary is something that JFrog can give as a holistic solution. Now that centers double plate on the holistic solutions. Security is great.

There are a lot of security companies in the market, a lot of them coming from Israel as well. But when you give it together with the repository, with the distribution capabilities, the security is on. So, we're expecting to see this addition coming as expansion in our portfolio and also offering us new opportunities in the market as we put our security capabilities.

Jacob Shulman -- Chief Financial Officer

And no, I will add to that, Jason, that this package will be available to customers in late Q3. So, we will know more about the contribution in poles in and we'll take it -- we'll know more what the packages on the market. It's available as a beta program, will be available commercially in Q3.

Jason Ader -- William Blair -- Analyst

OK. So, it will be included in, obviously, in Enterprise Plus. Is it going to be in pro and enterprise as an option? Or how is that going to work from a tier standpoint?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

It's going to be included in our Enterprise X Enterprise Plus in the on-prem. And before that, it's going to be available for cloud, enterprise, and enterprise cloud customers.

Jason Ader -- William Blair -- Analyst

Enterprise and Enterprise Plus, OK. Thank you very much. Good luck.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Thank you.

Operator

Thank you. [Operator instructions] Next question comes from Laurie Lee of Bank of America. Your line is open.

Unknown speaker -- Bank of America Merrill Lynch -- Analyst

Hi. This is Laurie on for Koji. So, just a quick question on -- you expanded one point in the quarter. Can you comment on what is the main driver for that? And also, if there are any things that you could observe for the usage and from like -- and also tier upgrades.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yes, I will take that. First of all, I heard just the first portion of your question. So, maybe we could repeat later on the second question. So, the expansion of our network venture rate comes primarily from expansion of our cloud customers.

We did see acceleration of our cloud customer goals, driven by transition to the platform and also increased usage, and that was the main contributor to the expansion of overall net dollar retention rate. And I didn't catch the second portion of the question, so I would appreciate to get that.

Unknown speaker -- Bank of America Merrill Lynch -- Analyst

Yeah. Just wondering on the usage, how much is that from like existing products for the same tier versus customer operate to a different tier.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yeah. We did see increase in the platform adoption in the cloud. It either comes from upsell of the vol customers or migration from enterprise plus customers on-prem to the cloud. I don't have the exact numbers, but our overall our enterprise plus revenue continued to grow significantly today represents 36% of our quarterly revenue.

Unknown speaker -- Bank of America Merrill Lynch -- Analyst

Yeah. Thanks for the color. And then just a follow-up on the previous -- talking about the longer sales cycle, has that impact on the lending ARR as well?

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

No, it doesn't. Just a longer cycle of the big deals to come.

Unknown speaker -- Bank of America Merrill Lynch -- Analyst

OK. Great. Thank you.

Operator

Thank you. Our next question comes from Michael Turits. Your line is open.

Unknown speaker -- Bank of America Merrill Lynch -- Analyst

Hi. This is Billy on for Michael Terri. I just want to ask how you guys are thinking about R&D investment dollars for the year ahead. Are you more focused on the product road map and new products or more focused on enhancing the current platform offerings with integrations, enhanced capabilities, etc.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yes. So, there are several areas of focus for us. First of all, security is a real focus for us. And then we know that the significant effort is invested given our first advanced security package into the market.

Second part is in IoT area. We launched Katolec products, and we see a lot of demand. This product still needs to be scaled to the level of the platform with digital features. So, that's the second major area of investment.

And third area of investment, as I said, is making our cloud very efficient, robust business. So, those are the three major areas of investments. Obviously, Artifactory, our main bread-and-butter today, and we also want there's a very rich road map for improvement and an additional feature of Artifactory as well.

Unknown speaker -- Bank of America Merrill Lynch -- Analyst

Great. Thanks for taking the question.

Operator

Thank you. Our next question comes from Rob Owens. Your line is open.

Rob Owens -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

More on the security side of things with everyone talking about a broader shifting left. Just wondering if there's an opportunity to consolidate across a lot of these security capabilities and just what you're seeing in the market right now.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yes. Well, shifting that is a trend, but what we are focusing on is not just protecting the developer, but protecting the software supply chain. It comes from the developer and then end up in production and in runtime. The one asset that is uniquely aligned on all stages is the binary.

So, since we are storing it, and hosting it for you, we can provide you a holistic solution for these whole stages in terms of security. Now shifting left is important because the majority of our users are developers themselves. So, if we want to provide them with holistic solution, we also have to ship the toward the direction. So, all kind of statical analysis that the markets have enough solution, but it will be included in our solution.

all type of protecting the development environment, protecting the and curating the refineries the platform outside the organization will be included, but we are focusing on the binary life cycle and protected all the way from the left to the right, all the way to the production impairment.

Rob Owens -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst

Great. And there's been a lot of news flow about larger companies lowering the number of new developers that are going to hire in this environment. So, just curious, given that dynamic, do you think you start to see that play out in deal sizes? Or on the other hand, does this really afford an opportunity given probably a more normalized pace of hiring moving forward for you to consolidate the opportunity around a lot of these fragmented categories. Thanks.

Shlomi Ben Haim -- Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder

Yeah. It's a good question. We see that most of the value that we provide to the market comes in the enterprise level and more specifically, as the development environment is being scaled cloud and on-prem, by the way. So, the reason for that is that when you start to have a bigger team that need to collaborate, by automate, need to distribute the multiple locations and security also need to be more efficient in all of this environment.

This is where JFrog sine mainly because of the binary flows. So, while I know that it will be super appealing and attractive for developers in a small development shop. We are starting with the enterprise part and the enterprise, and we will take it from there see observe and report to you how the adoption is right now.

Rob Owens -- Piper Sandler -- Analyst
