Cache contains entry K = V. Two concurrent threads, that execute:
Both of these threads can get succeeded = true.
When the server receives the operation ReplaceIfUnmodified=replaceWithVersion, it retrieves the entry (key + value + metadata) from the cache and checks that the version stored (in metadata) is the same as the version in the request. If so, it creates conditional ReplaceCommand which contains the value (retrieved atomically with version from the cache) and executes this one. Therefore, as the value is in both requests identical (and is not changed by the replace), two concurrent ReplaceCommands can both succeed, and this value is returned to the HotRod client.
