By 1954, magnetic core memory was rapidly displacing most other forms of temporary storage, including the Williams tube. It went on to dominate the field through the mid-1970s. [103]

A key feature of the American system of UNIVAC I in 1951 was the implementation of a newly invented type of metal magnetic tape, and a high-speed tape unit, for non-volatile storage. Magnetic tape is still used in many computers. [104] In 1952, IBM publicly announced the IBM 701 Electronic Data Processing Machine, the first in its successful 700/7000 series and its first IBM mainframe computer. The IBM 704, introduced in 1954, used magnetic core memory, which became the standard for large machines.

IBM introduced the first disk storage unit, the IBM 350 RAMAC (Random Access Method of Accounting and Control) in 1956. Using fifty 24-inch (610 mm) metal disks, with 100 tracks per side, it was able to store 5 megabytes of data at a cost of US $ 10,000 per megabyte ($ 90 thousand as of 2016)

 

The other contender for being the first recognizably modern digital stored-program computer [86] was the EDSAC, [87] designed and constructed by Maurice Wilkes and his team at the University of Cambridge Mathematical Laboratory in England at the University of Cambridge and the 1949th The machine was inspired by John von Neumann’s seminal First Draft of a Report on the EDVAC and was one of the first electronic digital usefully operational stored-program computer. [88]

EDSAC ran its first programs on 6 May 1949, when it calculated a table of squares [89] and a list of prime numbers.The EDSAC also served as the basis for the first commercially applied computer, the LEO I, used by food manufacturing company J. Lyons & Co. Ltd. EDSAC 1 and was finally shut down on 11 July 1958, having been superseded by EDSAC 2 which stayed in use until 1965. [90]
EDVAC

ENIAC inventors John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert proposed the EDVAC’s construction in August 1944, and design work for the EDVAC commenced at the University of Pennsylvania’s Moore School of Electrical Engineering, before the ENIAC was fully operational. The design would implement a number of important architectural and logical improvements conceived during the ENIAC’s construction and would incorporate a high speed serial access memory. [91] However, Eckert and Mauchly left the project and its construction floundered.

It was finally delivered to the U.S. Army’s Ballistics Research Laboratory at the Aberdeen Proving Ground in August 1949, but due to a number of problems, the computer only began operation in 1951, and then only on a limited basis.
commercial computers

The first commercial computer was the Ferranti Mark 1, built by Ferranti and delivered to the University of Manchester in February 1951. It was based on the Manchester Mark 1st The main improvements over the Manchester Mark 1 were in the size of the primary storage ( using random access Williams tubes), secondary storage (using a magnetic drum), a faster multiplier, and additional instructions. The basic cycle time was 1.2 milliseconds, and a multiplication could be completed in about 2.16 milliseconds. The multiplier used almost a quarter of the machine’s 4,050 vacuum tubes (valves). [92] A second machine was purchased by the University of Toronto, before the design was revised into the Mark 1 Star. At least seven of these later machines were delivered between 1953 and 1957, one of them to Shell labs in Amsterdam. [93]

In October 1947, the directors of J. Lyons & Company, a British catering company famous for its teashops but with strong interests in new office management techniques, decided to take an active role in promoting the commercial development of computers. The LEO I computer became operational in April 1951 [94] and ran the world’s first regular routine office computer job. On 17 November 1951, the J. Lyons company began weekly operation of a bakery valuations job on the LEO (Lyons Electronic Office). This was the first business application to go live on a stored program computer.

In 1951, British scientist Maurice Wilkes developed the concept of microprogramming from the realization that the Central Processing Unit of a computer could be controlled by a miniature, highly specialized computer software and high-speed ROM. Microprogramming allows the base instruction set to be defined or extended by built-in programs (now called firmware or microcode). [100] This concept greatly simplified CPU development. He first described this at the University of Manchester Computer Inaugural Conference in 1951, then published in expanded form in IEEE Spectrum in 1955. [citation needed]

It was widely used in the CPUs and floating-point units of mainframe and other computers; It was implemented for the first time and EDSAC 2, [101] which also used multiple identical “bit slices” to simplify design. Interchangeable, replaceable tube assemblies were used for each bit of the processor
