Atlas was a mainframe computer built by a consortium of the University of Manchester, Ferranti, and Plessey. It is notable for being the first computer to have virtual memory (called 'one-level store').

Its main memory consisted of 16K 48-bit words of core memory, and it was allied with 96K words of drum in four drives; its address space was 21 bits.
