DBA

All ApexSQL DBA tools are licensed per SQL Server instance

This means that each instance requires a license. If there are 3 instances, 3 licenses are needed. It's irrelevant whether these 3 instances are on a single physical machine or on three machines. The number of licenses also doesn't depend on virtualization or the number of users

Developer

All ApexSQL developer tools are licensed per user

This means that one user needs one license, regardless of the number of computers he/she uses (within reason). If a single developer/DBA works on multiple machines (a workstation at work, laptop, home computer, etc.), additional licenses aren't required. The number of licenses doesn't depend on the number of machines or virtualization
