What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Some explanations:
myServerAddress = this is the name of your server (or ip-address) (example: Company001)
Initial Catalog = this is the name of your database (example:  OrderDb)
myUsername & myPassword: the name and password of the database user that you use to login to your database.

Using connection as new SqlConnection("Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;")
     connection.Open()
     ' Use the connection
 End Using

If you are using integrated security (your username for sql server is the same as windows, you just need this string:
Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;Integrated Security=SSPI;
