    Why didn't Cisco buy Nicira

    I would guess Nicira didn't want to sell to Cisco and see their brain child getting killed.
    Management and investors are making good money on EMC/VMW so why go Cisco.
    Other than Cisco's spin-in/out (MDS, Nexus, UCS) I can't think of any successful buyout over the last 12 years. So that may also explain why Cisco passed on it.
