There a number of vendors that can either custom-build cases, or might
have something off-the-shelf that will work, and meet ATA300/Milspec
Calzone Cases - http://www.calzonecases.com/
Jan-Al Cases - http://www.janalcase.com/
Pelican-Hardigg - http://www.pelican.com/
NOTE: I use several different types of road/flight cases for transporting
audio gear for $sidejob.
Fair warning: A case that provides the level of cushioning and impact
protection you're looking for is likely to be heavy - possibly as heavy as
the server itself.
