InnoDB is a MySQL database engine, which has been gaining popularity in recent years, as it offers a better overall performance and a faster database crash recovery in comparison to the default engine that is used by the MySQL relational database management system – MyISAM. InnoDB is used by plenty of web developers that create scalable web apps, as it works much more efficiently with large volumes of data, while it keeps the server processing load at a minimum. In addition, it locks only a single database row if any info should be updated, whereas many other engines lock the entire table and hence require much more time to fulfill several sequential tasks. Last, but not least, InnoDB complies with a set of "all-or-nothing" rules – if the entire data modification cannot be completed for some reason, the action is rolled back to avoid scrambling or the loss of data. Magento and the latest Joomla™ releases are two examples of widespread PHP script-powered apps that have moved to InnoDB.
InnoDB in Website Hosting
You’ll be able to install any script-powered application that requires InnoDB if you’ve got a website hosting with our company, as the MySQL database storage engine is available 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 continue impeccably in case this engine is needed. You can install applications which require the MyISAM engine without having to deal with any obstacle as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not have to modify anything manually at any moment. Furthermore, we will also create regular backups of all the databases that you have in your shared hosting account, so in case you erase or overwrite something, we can easily restore it the way it was on any of the past 7 days.
