I need to know what's the difference in between using VMware 6.0 replication and Veeam Backup & Replication v9.5 ?

My requirement is:
1. To have the VM replicated from the Production Datacenter into the DR Datacenter smoothly at a certain time interval (the Differences only) eg. every 2 hours to 60 minutes.
2. Same IP address and slightly different name (to indicate it is replicated VM) so it is ready to start when the DR strikes, but how do I avoid if someone turning on the replicated VM in DR datacenter?

My assumption is that both the replication is like taking VM clone (long) initially and then snapshotting it to send the difference to the remote DR data center.

The VM replication is on the storage array level or is it on the VM level ?
