InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, as it provides a better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine that’s used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by numerous programmers that write scalable software applications, since it works more effectively with large data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. In addition, it locks only a single row in the database in case anything should be updated, while lots of other engines lock the entire database table and thus require more time to perform multiple consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the modification of the entire data cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two examples of popular script-powered applications which have shifted over to InnoDB.
