I just noticed that this is not the extreme total size of a ZFS pool
(should have noticed this while answering late at night ...)

And no, a specified life-time of 2880 TB written is not much, it is
at the absolute lower end of currently available SSDs at 360 TB per
1 TB of capacity.

This is equivalent to 360 total capacity writes, but given the high
amount of write amplification that can be assumed to occur in your
use case, I'd heavily over-provision a system with such SSDs ...
(or rather: strictly avoid them in a non-consumer setting).
