Ciao, Sun Ray!

Yesterday I flew into Rome's Leonardo da Vinci Fiumicino Airport to meet with our Italian team of Systems Engineers and Giacomo Tufano, the Italian SE manager. The flight was fine, no issues. I did however get a surprise when I had to pass through customs. No this is not another story about how travel went bad, rather when I handed my passport to the customs officer, I noticed something familiar.
That is right, they are using Sun Ray Virtual Display Clients! What better way for a security focused organization to be more secure. And at the same time they don't need to deal with the desk clutter, heat and noise that a PC would generate. Perfect!
So hats off to Polaria (Italian Airport Police Division). Glad to see that once again the Italians lead in what is fashionable, sleek and fast!
...and for those that thought I had enough guts to take a picture in the customs area, well you are wrong. When I made it to the office I asked Giacomo about the Sun Ray solution we provided and asked if they had any pictures...
