Veeam immutable backup to AWS

I am attempting to create an immutable backup for my server.  I have a VMware virtual server (Linux).  I have a direct-attached external drive that I use as the immutable backup repository.

I have created an AWS repository and was hoping to mirror the immutable backup to that storage.

It looks like I needed to create the mirror on a local repository and then have it copied to the cloud.  So I decided to add local storage to my VMWare host.

So as you can probably tell, I am completely confused.  It feels like a chicken or egg scenario.  I am not sure what this should ultimately look like.  Don't know if I need to configure the Local Host storage first, or backup repository or configure from the Linux VM.

Is there a resource that says if you have a VMWare environment and want to create a Veeam immutable backup in the cloud, these are the steps you take and the order in which to complete them?  

So far I see hundreds or threads, but as soon as I start, I find that there is a prerequisite that hasn't been met.  So I am spinning in circles.

Tried to find the EE Gigs feature where I could hire someone to help, and it doesn't look like EE does that anymore.

Who would be kind enough to point me to a resource (human, video or flow chart)?

Thanks in advance.
