‘So Say SMEs’ and ‘Solutions by Engineers for Engineers’

What’s the difference between So Say SMEs in Virtualization and Cloud (SSS) and Solutions by Engineers for Engineers (SEE)?

SSS is a high level, impromptu conversation about the latest tech trends in virtualization and cloud. The topic is broad. It is not meant to be a technical deep dive. On the other hand, SEE is a technical deep dive on a specific topic. It’s focused on a single topic.
