GOBI Plus the Sun network

Well I actually connected to the Sun internal network using my new Gobi Laptop. So this thin client has successfully navigated my home network, the vpn tunnel and landed on the Sun Ray network at Sun. Very cool. So now I can access my corporate desktop from an office, the Sun Ray @ home or the Gobi Laptop when on the road. Very nice.

The Gobi 8

So I got a Gobi 8 Sun Ray laptop to enable me to demo Sun Ray technology to our clients. Sun Ray is one of the easiest products Sun has to setup. Of course this in single server mode. I am still a newbie. But I got a laptop Sun Ray this week. Connecting it was realatively straight forward. The Gobi connects flawlessly over the ethernet. It will support wireless networks(b/g, wep/wpa/wpa2). As well as 3G. That is the next trial.

The great thing is the Gobi has built in VPN technology. So now I can connect anywhere to the Sun Network. How cool is that ? I can get to my desktop anywhere anytime.

My dream machine Sun laptop... Hint Hint

If I were to have the dream machine perfect laptop from Sun, I am thinking that I would start with Asus Z84Jp chasis. Of course it would run Solaris 10. I would max the memory out with 4GB of Ram. Yes that is 4GB. I do alot of demos so the memory will come in handy. The only problem I see is that it needs some cardio. As it is kind of portly. It is from the Big and Tall laptop shop. Plus I would swap out that Intel Chip for a Niagra 2. It is the dream machine now :) Some specs...
