Answer / sanjeev chauhan
InnoDB: Row level locking, Transaction support, forgin key
constrant and crash recovery.
MyISAM: Much more conservate approach to disk space
management each MyISAM table store in a separate file. in
MyISAM memory and space usage, full text indexing support,
table based locking, bulk insert capabilities and speed are
plus factor but crushes recovery would be the horror story.
As general approach, if you have a more reads use MyISAM and
if you have a more update use InnoDB.
