You use vSphere Client to manage an esx host directly or to connect to a Vcenter, vSphere client does not need a license
Vcenter is like the centralized management software to manage multiple esx hosts and you need license for it

Agree with ryder, to a certain extent, but vSphere seems to be the new marketing name for what we used to call vCenter plus ESX, which includes a core server component and the Virtual Infrastructure client (VI), along with a vMware host OS license.

VI never looked any different to me than vCenter client, except in vCenter(fundementals) I could look at 3 machines, up to 2500 with the full license.

vMware is marketing it as "Private Cloud computing", but to me its a repackaging of ESX, vCenter , vi along with enhancement in both application and infrastructure tools like clustering, thin provisoning, image resizing, etc etc to make a better esx.
