InnoDB is a storage engine for MySQL databases, which is used by well known PHP script-powered software applications like Joomla 3.x and Magento. It is ideal for scalable apps, as it performs really well when processing enormous volumes of data. Rather than locking the whole database table to enter new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can handle a lot more tasks for the same period of time. Moreover, InnoDB offers an improved crash recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – rules that indicate how data imports and modifications should be treated. In case a specific task hasn’t been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the information in the database will stay undamaged and will not be partially mixed with newly appended content.
