I'm managing machines with 30TB of storage for more then two years. And with 
good reporting and reaction we have never had to run fsck.

However I'm sure that if you have to run fsck on so big file systems, it will 
be fater to rebuild the array from other storage then waiting for a few weeks 
to finish.

On machines like that I use CentOS but I'm pratitioning them before the 
install with a rescue live cd that I have created for me.
