InnoDB is a popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got plenty of advantages which have made it the preferred engine for numerous script-driven applications, such as Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding enormous volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to complete a particular task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Put simply, adding new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain problem appears during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
