InnoDB is a popular storage engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has lots of strong sides that have made it the preferred engine for lots of script-powered software apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing huge data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only one row to complete a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is tackled. Simply put, appending new or modifying existent data will either be fully completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case some problem occurs during the process, so the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
