MySQL 5.5 Reference Manual  /  Optimization  /  Optimizing for MyISAM Tables

8.6 Optimizing for MyISAM Tables

The MyISAM storage engine performs best with read-mostly data or with low-concurrency operations, because table locks limit the ability to perform simultaneous updates. In MySQL 5.5, InnoDB is the default storage engine rather than MyISAM.
