Scalable-leads to business growth:

Scalable-leads to business growth Go applications can scale up or down easily. It will not require employment or subsequent deployment of additional resources. As a result, companies save costs of buying additional server space. Golang is scalable because of its goroutines. They can calculate the stack size of every task in advance and then allocate memory resources accordingly. This results in optimum utilization of memory thus making the application scalable.

Concurrency-Simultaneous task execution:

Concurrency-Simultaneous task execution Allows simultaneous instructions to be executed by a computer program. In absence of concurrency, programs are executed sequentially. Goroutines in Golang enable simultaneous parallel task execution or multi threading. It provides basic support for concurrent execution and communication while its concurrency model follows sequential process of communicating.

Quick Compilation- Fast Go To Market:

Quick Compilation- Fast Go To Market By compiling directly to the machine code Go compiles even large binaries instantly reducing the Go-to-Market time of applications. Go does not re-read header files. It has exceptional dependency management which works across modules to cuts out extra work. This strategically reduces compile time and saves business unnecessary time and cost resources.

Completely Garbage Collected-No downtime:

Completely Garbage Collected-No downtime Golang is completely Garbage collected. It can accurately determine and remove which objects are no longer referenced. Then it makes this heap space available. This relieves developers from the burden of freeing allocated memory and saves development time and cost. It also prevents programmers from accidentally freeing incorrect memory and committing other errors in memory management.

Error Checks-Bug Free applications:

Error Checks-Bug Free applications Golang requires every variable to have a type associated with it . Programmers must return possible errors from functions and handle those returns. The usual way of error handling in Golang is to compare the returned error to nil. A nil value means that no error has occurred and a non-nil value means there is an error. Developers have to handle each one of them and the resultant code is error-free. It helps prevent subsequent costs of bug searching, fixing and application downtime.

Platform Portability- Low Costs:

Platform Portability- Low Costs Golang is a compiled language which means that code needs to be written individually for every platform. Once the program is compiled, the resulting binary will simply work on the target platform. Golangs dependency management enhances its cross-platform support. It handles dependencies at build time rather than at runtime. Programmers can cross-compile code very easily with Go tooling by setting a variable or two before compiling. The packages are then automatically included.
