Why is disk IO/performance so poor on my new KVM VPS?

Disk IO/Performance

By default KVM servers are deployed using the more compatible 'ide' module for the disk driver. For improved performance we recommend switching this to 'virtio' in the Solus control panel after you have installed the operating system. Some installations have compatibility problems with 'virtio' so can only be switched over after the operating system is installed.
