I assume you are asking about accessibility of the table on which you are rebuilding the index. Yes, you can do an online rebuild but the feature is available only in Enterprise edition (and developer or evaluation version). There are some other restrictions as well, e.g., you cannot do online rebuild on an XML index.

You can reorganize the index online. http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms189858(v=sql.105).aspx

If possible, avoid peak hr index rebuilds as to minimise impact. Are you trying to make this index rebuild due to a recent data change or is it a performance issue?
