Cisco 9000 series

I was doing some research about the emergence of SoIP networks. Currently Nishan makes a box that does FC,iSCSI, IP all in one box. So basically what you can do is have FC to your servers and to your storage with IP run by 6509's in between so that you can connect to remote storage and it also gives you the ability to run a standards based protocol which FC has accomplished yet.

Question is this. Is this the capability that has been designed into the Cisco 9000 series?
