Nimble HF20C to Nimble HF20 field upgrade

There is no dedupe capability in Nimble HF20C. Is there a field upgrade Product Number or service available in order to convert to HF20?

No, C-model is always C-model. 

HF20C can only able to upgrade to 40C or 60C. (might need cache upgrade as well for meeting minimum cache capacity per plaform)

Thanks for the information, the subject is settled.

Nonetheless I wonder if this is a marketing restriction because both HF20 and HF20C controllers seem to be physically identical and the deduplication capability might just be a set-on feature not made available for C-series.
