This floor looks like coated with epoxy to give this shine look. The surface of epoxy will scratch after a period of time. The best alternative for this similar look is polished concrete. A polished concrete is more labor intensive, but in the long run it will last a lot longer. The shine of a polished concrete is from the chemical reaction of the concrete with densifier to create a harness of concrete that is able to be polished with different grids of pads. The result of a polished concrete is a "breathable" surface, meaning no coatings. It is a lot more resemblance of a marble natural look.
