    Assisted Solution

    You need:
    *Host hardware to run View (check against VMware HCL)
    *vSphere (ESXi)
    *vCenter Server with View Composer installed on 1 machine, preferrably a VM
    *View Connection Server with Administrator installed on another machine, preferrably a VM
    *OS licenses to create the Mgmt VMs and VM Desktops
    *VMware Tools installed in all VMs
    *View Agent install on the VMs used as desktops (created in Pools)
    *Something used as a Client to connect to the View VM desktops, beit windows device, or thin/zero clients

    Now that is just a high-level run-down. You need to check the documentation for the more detailed info of what you need.
