InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery compared with the default engine that is used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by numerous web developers that build scalable applications, because it works much better with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Also, it locks only a single row in the database if any info should be edited, while lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore need more time to fulfill multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB obeys a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed for whatever reason, the action is rolled back to avoid scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the newest Joomla versions are two instances of popular script-based apps which have moved to InnoDB.
