Good day, and welcome to the MongoDB Second Quarter Fiscal 2021 Earnings Conference Call. [Operator Instructions] I would now like to turn the conference over to Brian Denyeau with ICR. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you, Chuck. Good afternoon, and thank you for joining us today to review MongoDB's second quarter fiscal year 2021 financial results, which we announced in our press release issued after the close of market today. Joining me on the call today are Dev Ittycheria, President and CEO of MongoDB; and Michael Gordon, MongoDB's COO and CFO.
During this call, we will make forward-looking statements, including statements related to our market opportunity and future growth, our financial guidance and the anticipated impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our business and results of operations. These statements are subject to a variety of risks and uncertainty that cause actual results to differ materially from our expectations. For a discussion of the material risks and uncertainties that could affect our actual results, please refer to the risks described in our SEC filings, including our most recent annual report on Form 10-K and quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Any forward-looking statements made in this call reflect our views only as of today, and we undertake no obligation to update them.
