Ask HP for a quote to upgrade your user licence (You might need a stiff drink after)
or buy a new/second user machine with a larger user licence.

As a replacement product, look for Series 9x8 or 9x9; see following URL for more details: http://www.mpeixservers.hp.com/index.html

You may purchase a refurbished board (swap actually) from a 3rd party reseller that has the number of licenses you need. As these boards were manufactured before HP stopped selling the 9x7 line they are perfectly good and are eligible for maintenance from HP. They would be a LOT cheaper than a new 9x9 machine. www.3k.com and other sites have lists of 3rd party resellers, just pick three, give them your specs and let them beat each other over the head trying to give you a lower price.
