InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, because it offers a better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine used by the MySQL DBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by numerous developers that build scalable apps, since it works much more effectively with immense data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load low. In addition, it locks only a single database row in case any information should be edited, while many other engines lock the entire database table and therefore need much more time to perform several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the latest editions of Joomla are two examples of famous PHP-based applications which have switched over to InnoDB.
