InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a number of pluses that have made it the engine of choice for many open-source script-driven web apps, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding large amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to complete a given task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable applications. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the information is handled. Put simply, appending new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a given problem appears during the process, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
