InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got lots of strong sides which make it the preferred engine for many PHP-powered software applications, among them Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, importing enormous data volumes will be faster with InnoDB, because it locks only a single database row to complete a specific operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. In simpler words, appending new or updating existent data will either be fully completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if any problem occurs during the process, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
