open source, freeware, script backup .vmdk nightly

Is there a way to automate the backups with VMware vCenter Converter?  Or a free solution to schedule nightly backups on five Windows 2008 servers?
I'm using the free version of Vsphere 5 in a development environment and would like to schedule full VMware backups on a nightly basis.

There is no scheduler anymore with VMware Converter.

free backups listed in my EE Article

I would suggest looking at GhettoVCB or Veeam Backup Free Edition
