difference between scsiport and storport?

Hi,

We use Windows OS on our SAN hosts with HBAs.

I was wondering, what is the difference between the scsiport driver and the storport driver that is available for windows?

Thanks

Storport stack was introduced by Microsoft on Windows 2003 to provide better support for SAN devices. It's more appropiate for disks on a SAN.

A good article about storport here:
