No, these are your transaction logs.

You need to take a FULL backup using an exchange aware backup product.  If you re doing this and it's not flushing the logs then another option is to take a full backup, turn on circular logging, allow the logs to flush, turn off circular logging then take another full backup.

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.
