MySQL InnoDB Storage Engine

InnoDB storage engine best suited for write heavy environments thanks to row-level locking. InnoDB stores user data in clustered indexes to reduce I/O for common queries based on primary keys. To maintain data integrity

InnoDB Characteristics:

  1. InnoDB supports FOREIGN KEY constraints, To maintain data integrity, hence we call MySQL with InnoDB is RDBMS.
  2. Inserts, updates, and deletes are all checked to ensure they do not result in inconsistencies across different tables.
  3. InnoDB has been designed for CPU efficiency and maximum performance when processing large data volumes. 4: We can use InnoDB, if the table use lots of Insert, update and delete operations.
  4. We can use InnoDB, if the table use lots of Insert, update and delete operations.
  5. We can mix InnoDB tables with tables from other MySQL storage engines, even within the same statement. For example, you can use a join operation to combine data from InnoDB and MEMORY tables in a single query.
