InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by well known PHP-based software applications like Magento and Joomla 3.x. It’s perfect for scalable applications, since it excels in managing immense amounts of data. Rather than locking the whole table to import new information into a database like many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one row, so it can perform much more operations for the same length of time. Also, InnoDB offers a much faster crash recovery and supports transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that specify how data imports and updates should be treated. In case a given operation hasn’t been thoroughly completed for any reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will be retained undamaged and will not be partially merged with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Hosting
You can make use of any PHP script-based application that needs InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux hosting service with our company, as the MySQL database engine is available on our innovative cloud hosting platform as standard. During the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is required. You can run apps that require the MyISAM engine without encountering any impediment as well and, once again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to modify anything manually at any point. What’s more, we’ll also generate daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you have in the account, so if you delete or overwrite anything, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
