I would recommend checking the vPro training available at:
Also check this vPro documentation:
In terms of hardware:
You can use your own network server.
The most important information is, which kind vPro machines do you have. More than that, which AMT version of each vPro machine. Once you have this information you will be able to know which benefits you will get from vPro.
Also, one of the best ways to identify if a machine has vPro support is: Get its processor name, go to http://ark.intel.com http://ark.intel.com and make a query by the processor name. The results will indicate if the processor has vPro support.
In terms of software (In Windows environment) I would recommend Intel SCS.
