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 
standards.

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.
