Fault Tolerance - VMware

What is the best and easiest way to create Fault Tolerance (24 x 7 continuous) availability for our critical servers to ensure the services do not go down at all in Virtual (VMware) and Physical.

I believe in VMware I could use the FT feature (since we have vCenter 6); however for Physical servers what is the best solution.

Double Take solutions or Storage Crafts solutions work with physical and virtual machines.

If you have just virtual then VMware FT.

I took a look at Double Take Solutions.  It seems more like a DR solution.  Storage Crafts looks like  a cloud solution.
Not too sure if they provide FT function.
Any idea  what the average cost is please?

I do understand there is Replication and SRM in VMware.  But I am looking for a simple  FT solution to ensure our Servers are available  24x7.
Thanks.

Virtualise them all and use VMware FT.

As for prices you need to discuss with the vendors.
