InnoDB is a very popular database storage engine for the MySQL RDBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got plenty of strong sides which make it the preferred engine for a lot of PHP script-based software applications, such as Magento and Joomla™, which have shifted over to InnoDB permanently. For instance, adding immense volumes of data will be faster with InnoDB, due to the fact that it locks only a single row to perform an operation, not the entire database table, which makes the engine excellent for scalable apps. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the information is handled. Simply put, importing new or updating existing data will either be entirely completed, or will be aborted and the procedure will be rolled back in case some issue appears during the process, hence the content that remains in the database will not be damaged.
InnoDB in Web Hosting
Every PHP script-driven web app that requires InnoDB will function impeccably on our avant-garde cloud platform and the MySQL storage engine is available with all our web hosting packages. Every time you create a database manually or our app installer tool creates one automatically and an app installation is initiated, the engine that the database will use will be selected based on the app’s requirements without having to update any setting in your account. InnoDB will be picked automatically for any app that requires this specific engine and you’ll be able to make the most of its full capacity. We will create daily backups of your content, so in case you accidentally delete a database that is important to you or you overwrite certain parts of it, we will be able to restore the database the way it was only several hours ago.
