You want something beyond the scope of the cloud IaaS provider’s technical support, but do not need the service provider to manage the environment on your behalf. You want help and guidance while you manage the environment yourself. Examples of services: Service Desk services and Azure Consultancy Services
You want the service provider to handle frontline operations (monitoring, responding to alerts, incident and problem management, including collaborating on root cause analysis). You also want the service provider to help you with other routine operational tasks, such as configuring the cloud provider’s services and managing the OS on virtual machines (VMs). Examples of services: Azure Monitoring & Alerting and Billing Services.
You do not want to manage anything other than your own content and application code. You would like the service provider to take care of running the environment to as great an extent as possible. An example of a service: Our Azure Operations services, where we will take full responsibility for running deployed workloads (IaaS, PaaS and/or SaaS) in Microsoft Azure.
