InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has a lot of pluses that have made it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-based software applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one row to accomplish an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. Put simply, appending new or editing existing data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back if a given issue shows up in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
