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.

any sample .csv files with the name like 1234_abcd_20090402.csv ,i need the  package to check for the extension and  the filename part before first "_" (1234 in this example)to be numeric..and i am trying to execute a child package for such files...the rest to be archived before the child package starts executing..so i am trying to place an Execute SQL Task before execute package task and using conditional constraints..but i am not sure of the logic..or can i do that using script task also?  if so can you please explain how ...my filename always comes through a global variable named FileName..and i need dynamic flat file source connection to grab all the files from a particular folder...
