I wonder

Whether Cisco are ultimately hoping to pick up the v7000 series?

Think about it, IBM are keen to divest anything hardware related and Cisco really do need storage longer term. Cisco may as well take some time to understand and integrate the IBM platform (unlike the Whiptail acquisition they dived into feet first). This way IBM get to buy back a few more shares (their favourite pass time) and Cisco can hit the ground running when they finally decide to give EMC and Netapp the old heave-ho, a good-un.
