I need some good tips for witch backup solution to use with ESXi.
This is a private server, so price is important.

What do you use?

I know there is some paid solutions and there is always vmcenter but all those cost a dime.

Than again there is free scripts like this one but i haven't tried it:

Please post info if you come up with something beacuse i'm too looking for backup solutions of vm's.

Default Try VMXploer

Try VM Explorer free version is with no sheduler, runs on win machine can backup to remote share. Simple but not with sheduler in free version.
