Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, has created a private cloud IT environment with Red Hat solutions. As part of this project, Gulf Air has deployed Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP), and Red Hat Storage as the platform for its Arabic sentiment analysis solution.

The sentiment analysis solution is based on big data technologies that is capable of addressing social media posts in both Arabic and English. It is based on an open source Hadoop big data framework running across a server cluster in Gulf Air’s private cloud environment.

Gulf Air’s private cloud encompasses 200 servers running more than 100 core applications and holds more than 50 terabytes of data. You can find a case study on the deployment here.
