I have a Windows Small Business Server 2011 with Exchange 2010 running on it. I am looking to have a disaster recovery plan for this Exchange server. I am looking to find some good and affordable options to back it up/clone or a virtual server that would be able to take over very quickly in case the Exchange server crashes. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Yes,
Symantec is good option for virtual server backup.
Meanwhile, you can check this well described Technet library for backup, restoration and disaster recovery solutions.
Another good option you can also have check here which provide the good opportunity to restore the database even when backup is not available.

If you want QUICK recovery, then I suggest you look into getting a DATTO device.  It will spin up a Virtual Machine within about 30 seconds and is fairly affordable for the small business market.
