InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL database management system. It is an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous strong sides which have made it the engine of choice for a lot of PHP-powered applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding enormous amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to complete a specific task, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. Simply put, adding new or modifying existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the operation will be rolled back if a given issue occurs during the process, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
