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.
