Hi

I have been looking to replace our storage infrastructure. One of the IT companies suggested Fujitsu DX100 S4 would be suitable for our environment.

Please can you let me know a equivalent storage model in DELL and HP.

Thanks

HPE equivalent would be the MSA2050 or 2052, see https://www.hpe.com/us/en/storage/msa-shared-storage.html
NOTE it is made by Dot Hill who make most HPE disk shelves as well.

PowerVault ME4 would be Dell's new entry level shared storage since they broke up with LSI Engenio / NetApp.

How about what are your needs for storage? Capacity, latency, IOPS, data services (thin provisioning, clones, snapshots, replication), storage protocols needed, expandability, data workloads, etc.

There are many, many options in storage these days.

Finally is PowerEdge R740 a SAN?

If so what is key difference between  PowerEdge R740 and PowerVault ME4024  

Thanks

No, it is a server. A server is generally a compute device rather than a storage device, however if you put a load of disks in a server and run iSCSI software on it it can be used as a SAN.
