See what a database engine is, what exactly are the advantages of the InnoDB engine and why it's gaining a huge amount of popularity.
InnoDB is a database storage engine for MySQL relational databases, which is used by widespread PHP-driven applications like Joomla™ 3 and Magento. It’s excellent for scalable apps, since it performs stunningly well when managing large data volumes. Instead of locking the whole database table to import new information into a database as many other engines do, InnoDB locks only one database row, so it can complete much more operations for the same period of time. Additionally, InnoDB offers a faster database failure recovery and supports database transactions and foreign key constraints – a set of rules that define how data inserts and modifications should be treated. In case a given task has not been thoroughly completed for some reason, the action will be rolled back. Thus, the database content will stay intact and won’t be partially mixed with newly inserted content.
InnoDB in Cloud Hosting
You’ll be able to install any open-source script-based software application that requires InnoDB in case you have a cloud plan
with us, as the MySQL database engine is present on our avant-garde cloud platform as standard. Throughout the app activation – manual or automatic, InnoDB will be selected as the default engine and the setup process will continue flawlessly if this engine is required. You can activate apps which require the MyISAM engine without any difficulties as well and, again, the engine will be selected automatically, so you will not have to modify anything manually at any point. What’s more, we’ll also carry out daily backups of all the MySQL databases that you’ve got in your account, so in case you delete or overwrite anything, we can swiftly get it back to the way it was on any of the previous 7 days.
InnoDB in VPS Servers
If you select a VPS server
with our Hepsia Control Panel, the InnoDB storage engine will be an integral part of the standard software bundle that will be pre-installed on your VPS server before we give it to you. You will not need to activate anything manually and you’ll be able to enable and manage any PHP-powered application that needs InnoDB as soon as your VPS is up and running, which takes no more than one hour after the order process itself. A number of engines are offered, so every time you set up a database using the Hepsia Control Panel, a specific engine will be picked when the app activation process commences and our system will detect the engine that is required by the app in question. In case you need MyISAM, for instance, you will not have to do anything different than installing the desired app, whether manually or using our application installer.
InnoDB in Dedicated Servers
Our Hepsia Control Panel is among the features that you can choose on the order page when you buy a dedicated server
from our company. As this is the most powerful kind of hosting, it’s pretty likely that you will run highly popular Internet sites that will attract lots of visitors, and since InnoDB is among the best options for such sites, we will install it along with all the other software apps that are available with a Hepsia-equipped server. When you set up a brand-new MySQL database in your dedicated account, there won’t be any active MySQL storage engine until you start installing a script, whether manually via your web browser or using the automatic scripts installer tool that is included in the Control Panel. The required engine will be detected and will be assigned to that database, so you can make use of scripts that need InnoDB, as well as ones that need MyISAM – the default MySQL engine, without experiencing any problem.
