I have installed VMware 3.5 Esxi in my PC, and I am running several applications over it.
How I can provide backup for hardware failure case....?????

Veeam Backup, PHDVirtual esXpress, Vizioncore vRanger. Veeam has the best solution IMHO.

I have used both Vizioncore vRanger and Veeam. Depending on your needs, Veeam has a good replication to go along with it. Both of them have worked great for us, it really comes down to your GUI interface preference and speed requirements.
Linux / SAN / Virtualization
You have to find some backup solution for your VMs:
Also remember to backup ESXi configuration:
If this is the Free version of ESXi then you cannot actually use a third party tool to perform any backups. This is against your EULA. If it is the paid version of ESXi go for it.
So be sure which you are using to be sure you do not violate the EULA.
As for other mechanisms, you can snapshot the VM and then copy the data via the vSphere Client/VIC as well. There is also VMware Converter. These tools do not violate the EULA.
