These are most commonly used storage engines in MySQL are MyISAM and InnoDB.

Difference between MyISAM and InnoDB

  • MyISAM no longer supports transactions, however, InnoDB supports transactions.
  • MyISAM helps Table-level Locking, however, InnoDB supports Row-level Locking.
  • MyISAM helps full-text search, however InnoDB does not.
  • MyISAM is designed for the need for speed but InnoDB is designed for the most performance.
  • MyISAM does now not aid overseas keys, but InnoDB helps foreign keys.
  • We can use commit and rollback with InnoDB however not in MyISAM.
  • MyISAM does no longer assist ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability) however InnoDB supports the ACID property.
  • In the InnoDB table, the AUTO_INCREMENT field is a section of the index but is now not in MyISAM.
  • MyISAM stores its tables, data, and indexes in the disk area with the usage of a separate table name.FRM, desk name.MYD and table name.MYI however InnoDB stores its tables and indexes in a tablespace.
