HP StorageWorks MSA60 SAS/SATA 418408-B21

I am planning to set up this 579237-B21 - HP ProLiant DL360 G7 that I already have and a HP StorageWorks MSA60 SAS/SATA 418408-B21 that I already have.  I am trying to wrap my head around how this will work.  I want to have linux running on this server when I am done, and I want to have a raid 6 set up ideally with 6 to 8 TB drives in each SATA slot.  I cannot figure out the maximums to decide which drives to purchase to get going.  One spec sheet says the StorageWorks MSA60 SAS/SATA 418408-B21 can only use 1 TB drives in each slot, another site says it can do 2 TB drives so the 12 ports x 2 TB drives make the maximum capacity of the storage bay at 24 TB, another place said someone was using 12 x 3 TB drives.  I can't figure this out, but I'd like to use 6 or 8 TB drives because I want to future ability to be able to expand this to several hundred TBs in ONE RAID6.  Can anyone help clarify this for me? Thanks in advance.
