In a distributed Data Store, each server receives updated information through synchronization. Because the servers do not receive updates simultaneously, the server might NOT hold the same information at a given time. For this reason, each server holds on to the old information until all the other servers receive updates. NDS uses obituaries to keep track of such information.
