How to backup VMware servers?

Last Modified: 2012-08-21
This is using VMware ESXi 4.x Hypervisor on one physical server. There are few VMs created and now in production. Before that, we are using VConvertor to backup these VMs while they are running. Now, my management want me to come out a backup strategy on backing up all those VMs, so as, we can recovering them in when they are down. Without using any 3rd party tool, how can we made it? All of these VM OS are windows 2008 R2.

Thanks in advance.
