InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, as it provides a much 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 plenty of developers that run scalable applications, because it works much more efficiently with huge data volumes, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Moreover, it it locks only one row in the database if any info should be modified, while many other engines lock the entire database table and hence require more time to carry out several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB abides by the "all-or-nothing" rule – in case the entire data modification procedure cannot be completed successfully for any reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid scrambling or data loss. Magento and the newest versions of Joomla are two examples of famous open-source script-powered web apps that have switched to InnoDB.
