Biggest hard disk for HP ProLiant DL380 G6?

Hello! Dear support:
We have a server HP ProLiant DL380 G6 with serial number personal info deleted. We are planing to buy more hard disk with high capacity. Could you please tell me what is the biggest volume for the disk and its model name. Thank you very much!
Best regards,

    This is not support, but HP user community.
    Remove the serial number.  Such personally identifiable is against HP’s rules here.

    The Users here cannot associate SN to build.  The G6 is available as both a SFF and LFF build.  So we couldn’t recommend a PN (HP or otherwise).
    The largest hard drive I’ve hooked up to the P400 is 2TB Hitachi 7K2000 SATA HDD, HP documents states 1TB.
    I’ve used the same drives on a P410i and for some reason the arrays are slower there than on the P400 or P800.  I see the same thing with IBM / Dell branded SAS drives too.
    If you have older firmware you will need to update.  The 2009 firmware on both controllers would not support the 2TB SATA drive.
