InnoDB is a popular database engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of upsides which make it the preferred engine for many open-source script-powered web apps, such as Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing enormous data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single row to perform an operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. InnoDB also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. To put it simply, appending new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back if a given issue occurs in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
