InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got numerous upsides which have made it the engine of choice for a lot of open-source script-driven software apps, such as Joomla and Magento, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For example, importing large volumes of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only one row to accomplish a particular operation, not the entire table, which makes the engine perfect for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. In simpler words, appending new or editing existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if any issue appears during the process, so the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
