InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it offers a significantly better overall performance and an improved crash recovery in comparison with the default engine that’s used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by many web developers that write scalable software applications, as it works much better with large volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. What’s more, it locks only a single row in the database in case anything should be updated, while many other engines lock the entire database table and hence need more time to carry out several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the modification of the entire data cannot be completed for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to prevent confusion or losing data. Magento and the latest Joomla releases are two instances of popular script-based software applications that have switched over to InnoDB.
