As a result, the company could purchase a less productive system, and then, if necessary, replace it with a faster equivalent. Without rewriting software and other headaches. With the advent of System/360 was born the concept of “firmware” is the program that implements the instruction set of the processor.
The creation of the mainframe took about five billion US dollars. In the 60-ies of the last century the cost of development, second only to space campaign “Apollo”. However, System/360 became a cult. All the other companies released computers compatible with the mainframe. In the Soviet Union, analogous to System/360 became the “UCS”.
