It's also interesting to remember that the relational data model had been used in places other than persistent data stores before Codd wrote the 1970s paper, and that Codd alludes to those earlier uses in the 1970 paper.

What Codd introduced was, in fact, not the RDM itself, but its application to the organization of large, shared data banks.
