Virtual machines are the key component in a virtual infrastructure. User can create a single virtual machine to add to the vSphere inventory. When a user creates a virtual machine, it gets associated with a specific data center, host, cluster, or resource pool, and a datastore. Once the virtual machine is on, it consumes resources dynamically as the workload increases, or it returns resources dynamically as the workload decreases.
Every virtual machine has virtual devices that provide the same function as physical hardware. A virtual machine gets CPU and memory, access to storage, and network connectivity from the host it runs on.
To deploy virtual machines in the vCenter Server inventory, user can deploy from a template, create a virtual machine, or clone an existing virtual machine.
There are several articles related to the process of creating a VM and using vSphere Client. See the following:
Create VM Using vSphere Client
Working with Templates and Clones in the vSphere Client
Customizing Guest Operating Systems
Your IT department can create a VM on vSphere client, install MicroStation on it and share it with a colleague, using the steps above. To run the Virtual Machine, on your machine, you need to enable Hyper-V Manager as described above, and as it lists the available VM, right click on it and select Connect.
To start a virtual machine from vCenter Server/ Virtual Center:
1. Connect to your vCenter Server/Virtual Center using the vSphere Client/Virtual Infrastructure Client
2. Select the virtual machine you want to power on from inventory
3. Right-click on the virtual machine name and click Power On.
4. Or alternatively select the virtual machine's Summary tab and click Power On

VMware vSphere provides a simple architecture in the virtual environment to allow companies to manage computing, storage, and networking resources without worrying about the underlying physical hardware. It’s architecture allows enterprises to create and configure their datacenters and reallocate resources to different priorities without the time delay and cost of reconfiguring their physical hardware infrastructure.

VMware Horizon View is a VDI solution that combines the advantages of virtual desktop infrastructure with those of the VMware vSphere virtualization platform. If your company is interested in VDI and you already use VMware virtualization products, VMware Horizon is ideal. The main Horizon View components are: vCenter Server, ESXi Hypervisor, View Agent, Horizon Client, Connection Server, ThinApp, View Composer, and Horizon Administrator. With modern remote desktop protocols, users get a better experience and can connect to their desktops from anywhere. VMware Horizon View is worthy of attention if you are looking for alternatives to traditional desktops or remote desktop solutions.

VMware ThinApp is an Application Virtualization solution. ThinApp is able to execute applications without them being installed in the traditional sense by virtualizing resources such as environment variables, files and Windows Registry keys. The virtual environment presented to the client is a merged view of the underlying physical and virtual resources, thereby allowing the virtualization layer to fool the application into thinking that it is running as if it were fully installed.
