CMGR means “compound monthly growth rate.” This CMGR metric shows the growth of each region of the CSPs we track. This measure of size is a factor of the number of instance type families offered in the region and the number of sizes offered in each type family (specific core counts and memory configurations). Because we scan these CSPs monthly, we are able to calculate changes in this metric from month-to-month.
Regions with larger CMRG are shown with larger icons. Positive and zero CMGR values are shown by a solid circle, negative CMGR values are shown by a solid square. Every active CSP region has a CMGR value.
