InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has numerous upsides that have made it the engine of choice for plenty of script-driven software applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding enormous volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one database row to carry out a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Simply put, appending new or updating existing data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back if a certain issue occurs in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
