All modern Linux kernels include software RAID out-of-the-box.  This means any 
system that supports more than one disk that you can install Linux on 
(including CentOS) can be set up with Linux software RAID.  If you want 
hot-swap, there are various SATA hot-swap units than can be mounted in a ATX 
case with front 5" or 3" spaces.  A modern ATX motherboard with a AHA SATA 
controller will support Linux, including hot-swap SATA disks, including SATA 
connected SSDs.
