Fastest Way To Compile Linux Kernel

Hello, I am just learning about Linux Kernel Compilation, After choosing my options using make menuconfig, So I decided to compile the linux kernel using make -j 8 bzImage and make -j 8 modules, It’ really taking time to compile the kernel, Any fastest way to do that to minimize time?

You need more CPU core to go faster and faster disk (pci SSD). That is all. There is no other magic.

Thanks, Look at this: HP Proliant MicroServer, Intel Xeon,

And also:

Am running that in a Vmware Workstation, How should I increase the VM?
