There's a lot of aspects that go into the decision.

What are you looking to do on the SAN?  Are you looking for block only (FC, FCOe, iSCSI) or NAS/SAN to run NFS/CIFS?

What is your long term strategy, in place upgrade or forklift?  Do you want automatic data tiering or dedicated SSD for high iops throughput?  

What will be installed in this environment?

Both vendors are reliable.

I haven't seen anything on the Compellent side that integrates directly with Exchange, perhaps they have something new out there that I'm not aware of.

On the Netapp side there is SnapManager for Exchange will allows you backup the Information Stores and restore them quickly

For granular mailbox backups there is an integrated product (SMBR) Single Mailbox Recovery which is essentially Ontrack PowerControls that works well in restoring mailboxes

With regards to user friendliness both are ok, I've had more experience with Netapp so I'm biased but the other piece of the environment is usually with a Netapp it's the same OS and if you get a 3000 model and higher there is no forklift upgrade, I believe with the Compellent it is rip and replace when upgrading to a new mode.
