Professional Edition VM Explorer - Cloud Backup

I just licensed VM Explorer Professional.  I can't find where i can send a backup to a cloud storage facility, like AWS.  I'm quite certain I saw that ability in the list of features for Professional Edition.  Either I'm wrong, or I just can't find it. 

Please adivse.

Re: Professional Edition VM Explorer - Cloud Backup

To send a backup to the cloud, you need to define a storage target server first.
Go to "Datacenter" -> "Add a new Server" -> "Cloud Storage Targets" -> "Your kind of cloud storage"
See page 41 of the User Guide (v 6.4) for details.
You can find the User Guide in C:\Program Files (x86)\HPE\VM Explorer\Documentation.
