I would look into Office 365. MS will store Sharepoint in "the cloud" (expressing hatred for that term), and you will pay a subscription fee for it. Might be a lot cheaper than trying to keep extra hardware around for SP

-You may need to re-do the backup schedules (which I assume you already have but should mention it)
