InnoDB is now available

Posted Friday, June 7th, 2013 in News & tips

InnoDB tables are available throughout our cloud web hosting platform. With the latest MySQL update, InnoDB is now the default storage engine, replacing MyISAM. All new MySQL databases will feature InnoDB tables by default.

InnoDB is more stable than MyISAM; it is ACID-compliant and, most importantly - it offers full transaction support. It also uses row-level locking instead of MyISAM's table-level locking.

MyISAM's only real advantage over InnoDB is its full text indexing type search capability. If your website or application requires it, you can quickly convert any MySQL table from InnoDB to MyISAM using the phpMyAdmin interface.
