Windows Server 2008 R2 is available in all the bit processors. Windows Server 2008 R2 supports 64 bit processor too. We can also expand 32 bits to 64-bits. 64-bit processors give much memory and are highly compatible. A 64-bit computer can have both 32 bit and 64-bit ISO versions. But we cannot run a 16-bit legacy program on the 64-bit version.

Windows Server 2008 R2 64-bit is available in the authorized stores or can get on the Internet. It is same as other Windows Server 2008 Operating Systems. For the purpose of large memory space, one can always opt for a 64-bit ISO version. 64-bit is available to only those systems which are latest and have more than 8GB RAM.
