InnoDB is a MySQL database storage engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, because it offers a better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery compared with the default engine used by MySQL – MyISAM. InnoDB is endorsed by numerous web developers that build scalable web applications, since it works much more effectively with enormous data volumes, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. What’s more, it locks only one database row in case any info should be edited, whereas many other engines lock the entire database table and thus need much more time to carry out several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB observes a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – in case the modification of the entire data cannot be completed successfully for some reason, the operation is rolled back to avoid confusion or the loss of data. Magento and the newest editions of Joomla™ are two examples of widespread script-powered web apps which have switched to InnoDB.

with our company, as the database engine is present on our innovative cloud platform by default. Throughout the app installation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup will proceed flawlessly in case this engine is needed. You can activate apps that need the MyISAM engine without the need to deal with any problem as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you won’t have to edit anything manually at any moment. In addition, we’ll also create daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your shared web hosting account, so if you erase or overwrite anything, we can quickly get it back to the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
