Planning service
How the planning service works
This service involves planning the environment with AWS certified Professional Architects. Sessions include requirements and design in terms of the power of the AppStream2.0 environments available to different groups of users; the applications and tools available to them; the shared data sources and databases; the security controls and user permissions; constraints on data import and export; migration into the environment; and availability and support.

Setup and migration

Setup or migration service available
How the setup or migration service works
Digital Space analyse the existing application estate and create an agreed AWS target environment architecture. We then agree on a migration plan and implement it using our migration tooling and processes. Once services have been signed-off, we can optionally assist clients in optimising their infrastructure to ensure end users get the best experience.

Quality assurance and performance testing

Quality assurance and performance testing service
How the quality assurance and performance testing works
We ensure that new infrastructure is fit for purpose by agreeing on the design up-front with the client; performing our own tests; asking them to test and sign it off; and then supporting external penetration tests if they require them.

Where possible, we build environments from scripts using CloudFormation or Terraform so that we can regenerate them rapidly and reliably. We provide performance testing environments when clients require them
using scripts that ensure that they mimic live environments (though they are usually scaled-down).

We test client satisfaction with ongoing support services through monthly Service Review meetings. In these, we ask a standard set of quality assurance questions, requiring clients to give us an overall score for our service. Scores below 8 / 10 result in action plans and internal escalation.

Social Value

Fighting climate change

Fighting climate change

We monitor and publish our carbon emissions annually and have committed, via the Science Based Targets Initiative, to reduce them by 42% by 2030 against 2020 levels. We hold ISO14001 and have a Corporate Social Responsibility group that meets monthly to design and deliver improvement projects including improvements to the energy efficiency of our data centres. We use virtualisation technologies to improve consolidation of workloads and utilisation in our data centres and then use a combination of building management systems, free-air cooling, cold aisle containment and battery storage to maintain high Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE).

We enable our customers to reduce their emissions through use of our private and public Cloud services which are typically 80% more energy and carbon efficient than on-premises systems. Our SD-WAN services enable re-use of networking hardware and we provide recycling and re-use of laptops through our partners.

We gained a bronze award in 2022 from EcoVadis for being in the top 50% of the companies for whom they track Corporate Social Responsibility.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

Digital Space is tackling economic inequality primarily by recruiting Apprentices. Digital Space has a programme in place to source local apprenticeship talent for several of our first line roles. These apprentices are then developed into the business. Key areas of focus for the scheme are our Network Operation Centre and Helpdesk 1st lines, Customer Services and Sales. We will also look to take Product Managers, HR and Administration/Finance apprentices on an ad hoc basis. Our apprenticeship programme works with local schools but also partners with specialised external companies to ensure we get the right talent for the future talent pool of our business.

More generally, Digital Space creates employment for approximately 200 positions in the company head office and warehousing facilities in Newark, with the remaining 150 roles located across all regions of the United Kingdom.
We support home and flexible working, offer salary sacrifice for childcare vouchers, and all staff have the opportunity to opt into private health and dental care schemes. In addition, an Employee Assistance Programme is provided free of charge.
Each year, the team at Digital Space chooses a charity to support and raise money for through numerous fundraising activities and initiatives.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

Digital Space addresses equal opportunity by ensuring that everyone is treated with dignity and respect at work. We enforce and regularly review a number of HR policies, ensuring that all employees are treated as individuals, fairly and without bias, including through recruitment, training, promotion and career development and our values or “ways of working” reflect that.
The company aims to create a workplace where employees are confident of fair treatment, have access to opportunities and where the company has a mechanism for solving any problems that occur.

Digital Space supports the Equality Act 2010, where “equal opportunities” upholds the idea that all employees should be entitled to and have access to all of Digital Space’s facilities at every stage of employment, including the pre-employment phase.
That means every employee at Digital Space should have:
• An equal chance to apply and be selected for posts pre-employment
• An equal chance to be trained, developed, and promoted whilst employed with the company
• An equal chance to have their employment terminated equally and fairly
Employees have the right to:
• Fair practices and behaviour in the workplace
• Fair allocations of workload
• A workplace that is free from unlawful discrimination, harassment or bullying
• Merit based selection process for recruitment and promotion
• Fair processes to deal with work-related complaints and grievances

We have completed the government's Modern Slavery Assessment Tool and are working to educate our staff so that they are more aware of potential issues.


Digital Space provides a number of facilities for its staff to encourage a healthy work environment. Employees at Digital Space benefit from discounted physiotherapy sessions, the bike to work Government scheme and a range of discounts on products and services, including gym membership. The company offers a free corporate healthcare cash plan – Medicare benefits include cashback on prescriptions, consultations, diagnostic tests, scans, and complementary/alternative therapies. This also includes a 24/7 health and stress-related helpline service in order to assist with better mental health.

The company's objectives are to promote the health and wellbeing of all colleagues and to provide a safe working environment. This is evident in the investment made in the Newark office refurbishment, creating an agile workspace including several standing workstations to help prevent health conditions arising from prolonged sitting, along with new ergonomically designed chairs with body balance mechanisms.

We encourage and invest in our staff's ongoing career development, recommending and supporting training and further education across all teams and disciplines. We also work to encourage information sharing including regular 'all hands' meetings, weekly video presentations and the OfficeVibe survey tool which asks all employees to answer a number of questions about how they feel they're being treated and how this could be improved on a weekly basis.
