InnoDB is a popular storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has plenty of pluses which make it the engine of choice for lots of open-source script-powered software apps, among them Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB for good. For example, importing immense volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to accomplish an operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. Simply put, importing new or modifying existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be annulled and the procedure will be rolled back in case a given issue appears in the meantime, which means that the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
