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.

test yourself your own code, step by step
create a new php file, put your code alone inside, open the page in your browser, if you don't see what you're looking for, do a right click and choose view source
if you don't see what you're looking for the answer is no

At first look, you miss the brackets []
AND
you don't echo/print something

	$dates='["'.implode('","').']';
  ?>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.3/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css" />
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
  <script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.3/jquery-ui.js"></script>
  <script>
  $(function() {
    $( "#datepicker" ).datepicker();
  });
  </script>

<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {

	$('#date_required').datepicker({

				beforeShowDay: disableDate
      }); 

	$('#datepicker').datepicker({ dateFormat: 'yy-mm-dd', firstDay: 1});      
      
});


function disableDate(d) {
     return [($.inArray( d.getFullYear() + "-" + d2(d.getMonth()*1+1) + "-" + d2(d.getDate()) , <?php echo $dates; ?> ) < 0), ''];

My apologies.  This:
$dates='["'.implode('","').']';

should have been:
$dates='["' . implode('","' ,$dates) . ']';

line 6 is missing a double quotation mark right before the closing bracket.  It should be:
 $dates='["' . implode('","' ,$dates) . '"]';
