  1. We have different type of images, now my questions is when I use KVM Hypervisor which format is supported? Just Qcow2 and raw? I can't use VMDK format, that is correct?
  2. I know difference between these types, raw is faster and Qcow2 support snapshot, compression and ..., but can anybody describe them deep?

Question 1 is at least partially answered in the configuration guide, for example
