Portable servers

Hi all,

We need to purchase some servers which need to be portable, so we can send out 'to our clients' our software for demo/trial purposes.
There's to much software and setup configuration to be done in a simple install, so we need to ship out a small portable server they can just plug into their network and go ...
Does anyone do this kind of thing or can anyone recommend a server to do the job ?  
Apart from our own software, the server needs to run SQL and IIS.

It doesn't have to be a server I guess, but it has to have some fault tolerance with the hard drives.

Thank
s in advance.
K.

One option is to mount your servers in flight case racjks such as shown here http://www.arrowmere.co.uk/rack.htm#

Otherwise use a pedastal type server and and use a cabinet such that protects it during transit.
