Yesterday my senior asked me what is difference between Windows 2008 and Windows 2008 R2 servers.

Here is the answer:

  • Windows Server 2008 is the same codebase bits as Vista. It is available in two flavors 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 is the same codebase bits as Windows 7 x64. It is only available in the 64 bit version.
