InnoDB is a very popular database engine for the MySQL relational database management system. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got lots of strong sides which make it the preferred engine for plenty of open-source script-powered applications, such as Magento and Joomla, which have moved to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding large amounts of data will be faster with InnoDB, since it locks only one row to execute a certain task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. To put it simply, adding new or updating existing data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back if a certain issue appears in the meantime, so the content that remains in the database won’t be lost.
