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.

>3 months older
as suggested by above comments, please clarify what exactly means "3 months" ...


"exactly" 3 months ago:
dateadd(month, -3, getdate())


however, you might want to take only full months ?
