VMware Fail Over

3 servers: Main location 2 servers and branch office (120 Miles away) the third server.
Main location server 1 create 4 virtual server using VMware 6.x, Virtual 1 Wk 2012 R2 Standard, Virtual 2 WK2012 R2 stardard and SQL 2014 standard, Virtual 3 WK2012 R2 standard, Virtual 4 wk2014 R2 Standard. Branch location server 3 create 4 virtual server using VMware 6.x, Virtual 1 Wk 2012 R2 Standard, Virtual 2 WK2012 R2 stardard and SQL 2014 standard, Virtual 3 WK2012 R2 standard, Virtual 4 wk2014 R2 Standard.

Can VMware replicate the database from the main office to the branch, if on the main location server 1 fail, we can continue our business with out any down time using the server 3 from the branch?

You have no shared storage I would look at VM failover eg look at Vision Solutions Double Take

The main building does not have a generator in case of power outage but the second location does has a generator
