InnoDB is a very popular storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It is an alternative to the default MyISAM engine and it has got lots of upsides that have made it the preferred engine for many script-powered software applications, among them Joomla and Magento, which have switched over to InnoDB permanently. For example, adding immense data volumes will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to complete a particular operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and transactions – these refer to the manner in which the info is tackled. Put simply, importing new or editing existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be canceled and the operation will be rolled back in case any problem occurs during the process, thus the content that remains in the database will not be lost.

InnoDB in Cloud Website Hosting

While InnoDB is either not offered or it is a paid upgrade with other web hosts, it is an essential part of the standard set of features offered with our cloud website hosting packages. In case you want to make use of a PHP script-powered application that requires InnoDB specifically, in order to be activated and to operate correctly, you will not have any problems since the MySQL database engine is available on our custom cloud hosting platform. Irrespective of whether you create a new MySQL database and install an app manually or use our 1-click application installer software instrument, InnoDB will be selected automatically by our system as the default engine if the respective application requires it rather than MyISAM.
