The Intel® PCC at IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center (Intel® PCC – IT4I) is developing highly parallel algorithms and libraries optimized for latest Intel parallel technologies. Main activities of the center are divided into two pillars: Development of highly parallel algorithms and libraries, and Development and support of HPC community codes. The pillar Development of highly parallel algorithms and libraries focuses on the development of the state-of-the-art sparse iterative linear solvers combined with appropriate preconditioners and domain decomposition methods, suitable for solution of very large problems distributed over tens of thousands of Xeon Phi accelerated nodes. Developed solvers will become part of IT4I in-house ESPRESO (ExaScale PaRallel FETI SOlver) library. Development and support of HPC community codes includes creating interface between ESPRESO and existing community codes Elmer and OpenFOAM Extend Project.
