Thank you for pointing this out. I wasn't aware that this limit is actually imposed by the standard. Is there any other way to achieve link redundancy for more than eight devices (e.g. connecting 9 servers with two cables each)?

Uh-oh. Houston? I think we got a problem.
I think I misunderstood your intention. I initially thought you want nine and more physical links to form an etherchannel. Each LAG/Ethernchannel has a maximum of eight physical links. You're not talking about the physical links. You're talking about the maximum amount of LAGs/Etherchannels.
Yes, this is very much possible. The only limitation on how many LAGs/Etherchannels you can have will depend entirely upon the model of your switch.
My sincerest apologies for the confusion. I have erred.
