G’day, Australia!

Please excuse the very stereotypical opening; I’m Sauce Labs’ longest serving Australian staff member and I’m super excited to announce that we’ve launched our first APAC data centre!  It’s available for use now by Alpha customers, with some caveats; We’re on track to deliver the full Sauce Labs desktop testing experience by the middle of 2021, but right now we’re still delivering features.


What’s Available?

Right now, as a customer in Australia, you can sign up to use our European or US data centres to take advantage of our full functionality.  If you’d like to stick with our APAC data centre, here’s the features it has available:

Access & Availability

Concurrency is Free

Customers enrolled in our Alpha program get access to the APAC data centre free of charge, without impacting any of their concurrency budget for other regions.

Access lasts for 90 days after it’s granted.  All we ask in return is you run real test loads and provide feedback (see below).


Connecting is Easy (If we can get to your app)

The APAC data centre doesn’t currently have Sauce Connect functionality.  In order to connect, your SUT will need to have a public facing URL (or whitelist the IP addresses above)

If it does, you’re all set; Just change your Selenium endpoint to the one listed above, make sure you’re using one of the selected platforms, and fire away!


Feedback and Support

We ask that you don’t send support requests or feedback to  Instead, please share here, or contact Mike at (Mike’s email here if he’s OK with it).
