InnoDB does so much more than MyISAM, comparing them is like comparing a car with a bicycle.

The InnoDB errors you cite look like results of design and coding errors. MariaDB tried their best, for years, to mount a viable ACID-compliant alternative to InnoDB. They gave up. If Monty couldn't materially improve upon it, furious criticism of the sort you posted looks misdirected. So I suggest your frustration with InnoDB looks less about InnoDB, more about how you're using it.

There may be tables and operations in your system that don't need the overhead of ACID compliance. There are probably design issues with your InnoDB tables, and/or with queries on them.

So your solution, I suspect, will be a mixture of optimising your DDL and code, and buying enough server hardware to give InnoDB what it needs. If it's me, I start with a representative DB, analyse it for bottlenecks and possible optimisations (a possible starting point would be the optimisation cheatsheet described at, but there are advanced tools out here too), and go from there.
