InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity lately, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery compared to the default engine that is used by the MySQL RDBMS – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by plenty of web developers that write highly scalable web applications, due to the fact that it works better with immense volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. Also, it it locks only one row in the database if anything should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire database table and hence need much more time to perform several successive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the entire data modification process cannot be completed successfully for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or data loss. Magento and the latest versions of Joomla are two instances of widely used script-driven web applications that have switched to InnoDB.
