Hi @elvin93 

Fault Tolerance is not inclueded in vSphere Essentials Plus. You can use vSphere replication. I personally would recommend using Veeam Backup & Replication and setup a replication job from there. Also keep in mind that the HPE MSA 2040 is no longer supported with vSphere 7.0. So would it be possible to switch the HPE MSA 2040 with the MSA 2060?
