InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has a lot of strengths that have made it the preferred engine for lots of PHP-driven applications, including Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, adding huge amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only a single database row to perform a certain operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the way in which the data is handled. To put it simply, adding new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be aborted and the operation will be rolled back if any problem appears during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.
