comment best way to deal with 6 TB hard disks
@user206904 The disks will work just fine. Linux doesn't care how big the disks are, all that matters is that they are formatted with a Guid Partition Table (GPT) instead of a Master Boot Record (MBR). Given that your disks are already working with 3TB per disk, they are already set up correctly as GPT.

comment best way to deal with 6 TB hard disks
@user206904 Super User is a sister-site of here that is more suitable for an inexperienced person trying to learn basics, but do take a quick read there of the rules. I would also like to add my voice to the caution about using RAID 0. There are other options, such as a layered filesystem that (mostly) evenly distributes data across multiple partitions. You can also manually symlink data from other partitions, or even just mount one partition to a folder inside the other if your data divides evenly.

comment Is it wise to use SSHDs (Solid state hybrid drives) on a server?
Yeah. You can set up the RAID / caching yourself and use any file system, I simply recommend ZFS because it handles the RAID and the caching and it can guarantee integrity in the wake of power failure and silent corruption (RAID does not). SATA3 drives are the best way to handle large sequential R/W, and the caching helps to trap the random I/O from interfering with the SATA3 drives too much.

comment Secure file transfer in linux without SSH?
sftp will have whatever file restriction access you set up with permissions on the filesystem. You can set up sftp such that certain accounts require a public key to log in, and can only access the sftp subsystem (not a shell). You might also try ftps, which is ftp's encrypted big brother. ftps+chroot would probably work here.
