I would virtualize using Hyper-V and then use Hyper-V replica - it's free of license fees and in my opinion provides a better solution (neverfail is EXTREMELY expensive, DoubleTake is expensive and you can get the same type of DR system using Hyper-V Replica.  CA software never used or heard of).

CA Inc. (Computer Associates) is a VERY large company.  They have partnered with McAfee in the past (which is a ding), but they have excellent track records, have the financial backbone to not go out of business, and have a lot of resources for your network.  

We used to use them for antivirus in an enterprise domain.  They worked very well with minimal problems.  Not to say there were never any problems, but they always resolved them within their SLA (four hours for us).  

I have never used or heard of the other two.
