WORKSPACE XE uses an IP SAN protocol for more efficient block-level connectivity over high-speed Ethernet LAN networks or direct connection from the WORKSPACE XE to hosts, made possible by extensive connectivity on the appliance. By controlling and optimising both ends of the protocol WORKSPACE XE can provide a faster and more reliable connection, utilizing more of the available Ethernet bandwidth without the latency usually associated with NAS systems. 

In addition to providing efficient, reliable, and low latency connectivity to cross-platform clients the shared storage from the WORKSPACE XE is also presented to clients as a locally attached device versus a network share, bringing better compatibility to many creative applications that have a preference to work with locally attached devices.
