you should be able to place a button in the href like this or do an onclick on the button
<a href="javascript: history.go(-1)"><input type="button" value = "Cancel"></a>
<input type="button" value="Cancel" onClick="javascript: history.go(-1)">

Does it matter if my other button is server side?
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.
