Technically, if it works with 8tb drives, then it'll work with anything currently made.  The big shift was to the 4K advanced format drives, but the 8tb's should have that covered.  If you're going to swap out a drive off the bat, might as well look at the diskless units.

The question should be if you want such a large dataset across so few drives.  As for a jbod device, you can attach it with USB3 and it'll perform at the same level as you'd get from a TB device.
