For server orders, you would use SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_Hardware_Server. For virtual server orders, you would use SoftLayer_Container_Product_Order_Virtual_Guest. For additional service orders, it will depend on the additional service (e.g., network attached storage, object storage, global load balancer) being purchased.
