Yeah, it was ironic. It was playing on our expectations with cinematography and music to give us a feel that it was optimistic. Don't forget the people that were in the simulation for too long that lost their minds. That wasn't in the episode for no reason.
I don't think San Junipero was meant to be optimistic. I don't think it was a coincidence that final images of them happily living life inside the machine was intercut with images of warehouse filled with servers.
