Recently SAP development department called Microsoft Platforms published a new optimized high performance SAP 721 EXT kernel on Windows, which is powering different applications running on top of SAP NetWeaver stack (ABAP, Java and ABAP+Java).

The new SAP kernel is significantly speeds up the performance of the SAP applications up to 20 % !

721 EXT kernel is fully downward-compatible kernel and can be used instead of the 700, 701, 710, 711 and 720 kernel, including the EXT versions, which means you can use it for your SAP Business Suite applications.

You can run this high performance kernel on all supported Windows OS both in physical as well as virtual environment.

All this is achieved by introducing a new compilation method called Performance Guided Optimization (PGO) into the product build process on Windows. More information on PGO you can check in this blog: Profile Guided Optimization (PGO) drives next generation SAP NetWeaver Performance

The whole project was successfully driven and executed by two experts from SAP and Microsoft working in Microsoft Platforms group, namely Jason Kafka (jason.kafka@sap.com) and Mike Gusev (mikhailg@microsoft.com)
