Question

What were the functions of The Atlas Computer?

 

"The Atlas Computer was one of the world's first supercomputers, in use from 1962 until 1971. It was considered to be the most powerful computer in the world at that time.[1] Atlas' capacity promoted the saying that when it went offline, half of the United Kingdom's computer capacity was lost.[2] It is notable for being the first machine with virtual memory (at that time referred to as 'one-level store') using paging techniques; this approach quickly spread, and is now ubiquitous."
