InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years, as it provides a significantly better overall performance and a faster database failure recovery in comparison with the default engine that is used by the MySQL database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is preferred by lots of developers that create highly scalable applications, due to the fact that it works much more effectively with enormous amounts of data, while it keeps the server processing load low. In addition, it locks only one database row in case anything should be edited, whereas lots of other engines lock the entire table and therefore require more time to perform several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes the "all-or-nothing" rule – if the entire data modification process cannot be completed for whatever reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or data loss. Magento and the newest Joomla versions are two examples of popular PHP script-based applications which have switched over to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to use any PHP-based software application that requires InnoDB if you’ve got a Linux website hosting service with our company, as the MySQL storage engine is present on our innovative cloud website hosting platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate applications which require the MyISAM engine without any difficulty as well and, again, the engine will be pre-selected, so you will not have to update any setting manually at any point. On top of that, we will also perform regular backups of all the databases that you have in the shared account, so if you delete or overwrite something, we can easily get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
