Back up VMs on ESXi

I am trying to determine the best way to backup two VMs on a ESXi server. We only have these two VMs, and will not be adding anymore. These VMs provide one single function, and are rarely changed.  I could manually back them up to a NAS storage device from time to time and that would be sufficient.

Any ideas on a free product or process to do this?

Do you have a LICENSED (PAID FOR!) or FR£E ESXi license?

Because the software above only works with LICENSED (PAID FOR!)

I have been out of Vmware for a while now, dealing mostly with Hyper-V. I forgot all about the Export option.
