Sun Ray Multimedia Technology over 3G Wireless and VPN with a Gobi 8 Sun Ray Laptop

I was preparing for a customer meeting and decided to test our newest VDI 3.0 demonstrator with a Gobi 8 Sun Ray Laptop.  
I figured I would need to be connected at the customer site to a external network so I decided to use my AT&T HDSPA 3G Wireless Aircard with the Gobi 8.
In order to get to our internal VDI 3 demonstrator I needed to use our IPSec VPN gateway as well.      So after connecting I was presented with our VDI login and desktop selection screens. I tested bringing up OpenSolaris and Ubuntu desktops hosted on a VirtualBox desktop provider.  I then tested using Windows XP on a VMware VSphere desktop provider.  Sun VDI 3.0 allows customers to have desktops on different providers (Hypervisors) at the same time and allocated to specific users.  This means my user ID can have multiple desktops on different desktop providers supported by Sun VDI 3.

After logging in on the Windows XP desktop I noticed we had our Sun Ray Multimedia redirection components installed and a few sample videos.   I wondered
how the Sun Ray Multimedia Redirection would perform over 3G wireless and a VPN encrypted gateway.  To my surprise I found it pretty darn good so I took this video to share.  Please check it out.  Sun Ray and it's protocol really shine in long distance connections to VDI environments.

Stunning, absolutely stunning. Just a little un focus with the camera. I just would love if ISP's could have this as a "cloud" service for public use. How come Sun wasn't able to sell this to multi million users out there? In my darkest times I think Oracle will drop the Sun Ray and Sun VDI as a product line.
