There are many Replication Solutions

Veeam Backup and Replication
Nakivo Backup and Replication
Zerto Backup and Replication
Acronis Backup and Recovery
Storage Craft
Double Take HA

But all these are ADDITIONAL cost

I suggested VMware vSphere Essentials Plus which includes licenses for ESXi Hosts vCenter Server and vSphere Replication

All in a single price!

Feel free to select any Replication product they are all available for trial and do the SAME function!
