verifyOrder() will check your order for errors. Replace this with a call to
placeOrder() when you're ready to order. Both calls return a receipt object
that you can use for your records.

Once your order is placed it'll go through SoftLayer's provisioning process.
When it's done you'll have a new virtual guest ready
to use.
