InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got lots of strong sides that make it the engine of choice for lots of PHP script-driven apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to accomplish an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the info is handled. Simply put, adding new or updating existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if a given issue shows up in the meantime, which is why the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
