A big factor to think about these days is the software options that come with the storage - do you care about snapshots, remote replication, thin provisioning, dynamic reallocation, etc.?
At the "provide fast storage and multiple RAID options" level, everyone is basically the same. The variability is on the software functionality.

I agree with Andrew. I worked with EMC and IBM Shark on Sun and both work just fine. SAN disk is becoming a commodity. Cheaper, faster & better.

There are only three factors, in whatever order is important to you:
-speed, price, and reliability.
I have worked with EMC and Hitachi on Solaris, and been happy with both.
