I disagree on the point of encryption. There's a good solution out there 
if you just think outside the box.

Or inside the box this time around: dog cages. A heavy duty, welded 
steel dog cage will run you $300-$500 depending on the size. Bolt the 
cage to the floor, put your server(s) in it, and lock it with a good 
padlock. Voila! your own secure data cage.
