InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining popularity lately, as it offers a better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by lots of developers that build highly scalable applications, due to the fact that it works much better with enormous volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. Moreover, it locks only one database row if any information should be modified, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore need much more time to accomplish multiple sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or losing data. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two instances of famous open-source script-powered applications that have moved to InnoDB.
