InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by widespread PHP script-powered apps like Magento and Joomla v3. It is excellent for scalable applications, since it performs unbelievably well when managing enormous data volumes. Instead of locking the entire table to import new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can perform a lot more tasks for the same length of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers an improved database failure recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that indicate how data inserts and modifications should be treated. In case a certain operation has not been thoroughly completed for whatever reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will stay undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly inserted content.
