InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has lots of pluses which make it the preferred engine for a lot of open-source script-driven applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding huge data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to execute a given task, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is tackled. Simply put, adding new or editing existent data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case some issue occurs during the process, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
