Are there parenthesis around number? In this case text ordering rules will work:
63,5,3,101,1
You should convert text to numbers (parenthesis should be removed) and then order as decreasing numbers

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.
