Maybe a new section for this?

Describe the issue:
Customers are finding it confusing to utilize Virtual Datacenter subscriptions. We should provide more information about how the entitlements are consumed by the VMs and also provide step by step on how to configure an Activation Key that uses this subscription.

Suggestions for improvement: 
Add some examples of using Activation Keys with VDC subscriptions like we have on this kbase: https://access.redhat.com/solutions/2391331

Assigning to Julie for review.

Julie - looks like we'll need to add some quick conceptual content and three short procedures to cover each of the use cases to the Virtual Instances Guide.
