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.

perhaps i did not ask the question in more clear way.   i need to check both EE ID and the ID see the column C is what i need to be returned by formula.
