Read more about InnoDB and see why it’s recently been chosen as the default MySQL database engine.
InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a better overall performance and an improved database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of web developers that create highly scalable web applications, since it works much more efficiently with immense amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. Additionally, it uses row-level locking in case any info should be modified, while many other engines lock the entire table and hence require much more time to complete multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for some reason, the action is rolled back to prevent scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest Joomla™ versions are two examples of popular script-powered software applications which have shifted over to InnoDB.
