InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery compared to the default engine used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by numerous developers that run scalable web apps, since it works more efficiently with enormous data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load low. What’s more, it it locks only one row in the database in case any info should be edited, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and hence need much more time to accomplish several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the action is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the latest editions of Joomla™ are two instances of widely used PHP script-driven applications that have shifted over to InnoDB.
