SoftLayer_Software_VirtualLicense is the application class that handles a special type of Software License. Most software licenses are licensed to a specific hardware ID; virtual licenses are designed for virtual machines and therefore are assigned to an IP Address. Not all software packages can be “virtual licensed”.
