Thanks to a new virtual cloud data center in Australia (Sydney), your testing teams in APAC will benefit from more performant test runs on Sauce Labs, along with improved security and reliability through our best-in-class cloud technology.
While the functionality that’s currently available for tests run in this region is limited, you also have access to the US West region as part of this trial license; for details, see Supported Features.
If you’re signing up for a new free trial with Sauce Labs, simply select the Australia region as part of your registration process.
Because free trial customers have access to one region, this will be your only option for running tests during the Alpha program.
If you have access to a Customer Success Manager through your Sauce Labs license, you can request access to this region. As part of our Alpha release, you can access this region free of charge for 90 days without impacting your concurrency limits in other regions. In return, we ask you to run real test loads and provide feedback, helping us improve our services for you.
