Go was described as the emerging language of crowd infrastructure in 2014 by Donnie Berkholz. Sure enough, by 2017, Go has swiftly become the real language of cloud infrastructure. Every cloud company implements critical parts of their infrastructure in Go these days. These include AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Heroku, Digital Ocean, and a number of other big players.
Go functions as an integral part of cloud companies such as Dropbox, Cloudflare, and Alibaba. Similarly, it is a key part of a large amount of open infrastructures such as Cloud Foundry, NATS, Docker, Kubernetes, Juju, Openshift, Istio, Etcd, Consul, and endless others. Organizations are increasingly moving towards Go when they need cloud infrastructure solutions.
