Following the Cloud

Computing in the 1950s was the mainframe, with programs on punch cards that ran in batches with no human interaction possible. The problem was that a single batch could tie up a machine for days. In 1959, computer programmer Christopher Strachey thought of a more efficient solution — virtualisation — a way to run more than one program on one machine at the same time. It’s a core computing and cloud technology.
