If you use replication then reads are pretty much 100% available for an RDBMS. Writes can be too with certain caveats. Googles system doesn't actually offer anything over that. The election process can still be a problem as there's a pause and what about data which has been stored by the now dead system. It won't be available on the copies yet.....It doesn't look like they've solved anything at all!
