InnoDB is a very popular database engine for MySQL. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got a number of pluses which have made it the engine of choice for plenty of open-source script-powered applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have shifted over to InnoDB for good. For instance, importing immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only one database row to perform a specific task, not the entire table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is handled. Simply put, importing new or updating existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case a certain issue occurs during the process, so the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
