What is the best filesystem for KVM Hypervisor?
raw + VirtIO or
qcow2 + VirtIO ?
Performance is the main issue.
As it currently stands, this question is not a good fit for our Q&A format.

raw + virtio provides slightly better performance, but it lacks the snapshot ability. None of these is actually a filesystem, by the way.
