Every Sauce virtual environment is a brand new, clean test environment designed to reduce test flake. The cost of this approach is the additional time taken to create a fresh, clean environment. But now you can have the best of both worlds, we optimized Appium setup process to cut test startup time by 30 seconds. The below chart compares average test startup time before and after the optimization.



Note that the Appium setup process is not yet optimized for versions 1.8.1, 1.8.0 and 1.6.3 but the process will be optimized for all supported Appium versions shortly.
