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.

it depends on how Unix "Zipped" the file but probably yes.

Yes - but it's a commercial product!

There is pkWare (free): http://www.pkware.com/downloads/zipreader/home
or CamUnzip (free). http://www.camunzip.com/
or FreeZip: http://members.ozemail.com.au/~nulifetv/freezip/

and a lot more.

All of them can unzip ...
