14.8 InnoDB Row Storage and Row Formats

This section discusses how InnoDB features such as table compression, off-page storage of long variable-length column values, and large index key prefixes (innodb_large_prefix) are controlled by the row format of an InnoDB table. It also discusses considerations for choosing the right row format, and compatibility of row formats between MySQL releases.
