Hi All,

On each row I have a column which maintains the timestamp like "lastUpdated" etc. 

While inserting such row I want to make sure that the row should be only updated if the lastUpdated is older than the new one I am inserting.

One way to do this is - 

Read the record first check the timestamp if newer is latest then update.

Since I have higher volume of read and writes load. This additional read will add to it.  

Any alternative to achieve this?

Thanks,
Jay
