In computing, a method of implementing a new computer system in which the new system and the old system are run together for a short while. The old system is therefore available to take over from its replacement should any faults arise. An alternative method is pilot running.
1. The use of a computer system by more than one individual at the same time. Time-sharing runs separate programs concurrently by interleaving portions of processing time allotted to each program (user). See also quantum (definition 2), time slice.
2. A method, used primarily in the 1960s and 1970s, for sharing the capabilities (and cost) of a computer, such as a mainframe. Time-sharing allowed different clients to “rent” time on a large computer and pay for only the portion of time they used.
In computing, a way of enabling several users to access the same computer at the same time. The computer rapidly switches between user terminals and programs, allowing each user to work as if he or she had sole use of the system.
Time-sharing was common in the 1960s and 1970s before the spread of cheaper computers.
(Computer science) The use of a central computer by many users simultaneously.
