    If you need to have both VMs running with different IP addresses, you need to look for a guest OS based replication. What VMware offers is Fault Tolerance which basically keeps a secondary VM in sync and fails over to it if the primary VM fails.

    It really depends on the operating system and the data/application you want to synchronize. Maybe a solution like Double-Take (see http://www.visionsolutions.com/) is something that fits your needs?
