VMware Site Recovery Manager if you want this to be automatic.

VMware vSphere Replication

or

Veeam Backup and Replication

or Poor Man's DR, see my EE Articles

or you could use Double Take Availability

depends on your budget, whether you want automated failover, e.g. seamless.

How good is the connection, you could also consider Failover Clustering?
