It means that Delta Lake does locking to make sure that queries writing to a table from multiple clusters at the same time won’t corrupt the table. However, it does not mean that if there is a write conflict (for example, update and delete the same thing) that they will both succeed. Instead, one of writes will fail atomically and the error will tell you to retry the operation.
