SAS HDD для ProLiant DL160 Gen9

Добрый день. Требуется консультации HPE. Есть сервер ProLiant DL160 Gen9(s\n:CZ271702P8), сейчас на нем установлено 8x300Гб (SAS HDD, 4790A0ZSFXFD1714-один из серийных номеров) дисков. Контроллер - Smart HBA H240. Диски работают в RAID1+0, планируется замена дисков на более емкие по 8Тб для работы нового ПО(диски тоже будут в RAID1+0).
По спецификации (стр.23) выбрали диски: "HPE 8TB SAS 12G Midline 7.2K LFF (3.5in) SC 1yr Wty Helium 512e Digitally Signed Firmware HDD" (861590-B21). Прошу подтвердить, подойдет ли данная модель дисков на замену существующих на указанном сервере. Если не подойдет, то какие варианты? Также прошу уточнить кол-во дисков данного типа, которое будет поддерживаться сервером.
