InnoDB is a MySQL storage engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, as it offers a significantly better overall performance and a faster crash recovery compared with the default engine that is used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by numerous web developers that run scalable web apps, as it works much more efficiently with enormous amounts of data, while it keeps the server load at a minimum. Also, it locks only a single row in the database if any information should be updated, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and hence need more time to execute several consecutive tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB adheres to a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed for any reason, the operation is rolled back to prevent scrambling or data loss. Magento and the newest Joomla editions are two instances of widely used open-source script-driven software applications that have moved to InnoDB.
