if you provide some constraints, like whether or not you want to configure the raid as part of an os installation and if you are cloning a specific config or a rule based one & do you have to do this over a network or a locally booted machine, then I or other experts could get specific.

there are ways to do this for free if you are good with linux and shell scripting

Well, my company writes NAS & SAN appliance RAID/system management software, along with RAID configurators for many controllers.  I'm doing something right now with the same controller family and can build configs via a command-line.  But we have NDA developer agreements with LSI (who makes the controller for Dell), so have the firmware / software development toolkit.  So certainly it is possible, as I do it.  But  I am not offering to sell it, nor am trolling for a consulting gig.  I'm just saying it is not only possible, but in use where I work.
