MySQL supports several storage engines that act as handlers for different table types. MySQL storage engines include both those that handle transaction-safe tables and those that handle non-transaction-safe tables:
MyISAM manages non-transactional tables. It provides high-speed storage and retrieval, as well as fulltext searching capabilities.
MyISAM is supported in all MySQL configurations, and is the default storage engine unless you have configured MySQL to use a different one by default.
