InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of strong sides which make it the preferred engine for lots of PHP script-based software applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to carry out a certain task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is treated. To put it simply, appending new or modifying existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case some issue appears in the meantime, thus the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
