    Use para-virtualized drivers for the best performance
    Ravello VM Performance Best Practice

    As a general best practice, Ravello recommends using para-virtualized disk controllers (PVSCSI or VirtIO) and para-virtualized network devices (VMXNet3 or VirtIO) in your VMs for best performance.  For more information, go to the Disks tab and click on the icon "i" next to  Controller and likewise on the NICs tab, click on icon "i" next to Device.

    Note before you can switch to para-virtualized drivers, you need to make sure the drivers are installed inside your VMs. An easy way to get the drivers is to install VMware-tools into  your VM, after that you can switch to these drivers in Ravello GUI.
