  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation: This entry-level edition is aimed at small businesses that need an affordable, dependable, and secure application server. The Foundation edition supports 8 GB of RAM, one CPU, and 50 Remote Service Gateways but does not include Hyper-V, DirectAccess for remote access without a VPN connection, or Failover Clustering.
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard: The Standard edition is for small and mid-size businesses and has a rich feature set that includes Hyper-V and advanced remote access technology but does not support Failover Clustering. This edition supports 32 GB of RAM, 4 CPUs, one virtual machine in addition to a host, and 250 Remote Service Gateways.
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise: The Enterprise edition is designed for businesses who need to minimize downtime for mission-critical applications. High-availability technologies provided in this edition and not in the Standard edition include Failover Clustering, fault-tolerant memory synchronization, and Hot Add Memory. The Enterprise edition supports 2 TB of RAM, 8 CPUs, 4 virtual machines in addition to the host, and unlimited Remote Service Gateways.
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter: This premiere edition of Windows Server 2008 R2 is for organizations requiring the highest levels of availability and scalability. This edition supports 2 TB of RAM, up to 64 CPUs, plus unlimited virtual machine licensing and Remote Service Gateways. Additional fault-tolerant technologies include Hot Replace Memory and Hot Add/Replace Processors.

  • Server Core installation options are supported for all these editions of Windows Server 2008 R2 except Foundation. Server Core installations allow you to select only the server roles you need to run your applications. These minimal configurations reduce physical resource requirements, simplify management tasks by eliminating unnecessary components, and enhance security by shrinking the operating system's attack surface.
Headline features of Windows Server 2008 R2 include Live Migration for Hyper-V virtual servers, Clustered Shared Volumes (CSV) for high-availability clustering, BranchCache for improving remote office connectivity, DirectAccess for simplifying remote access for Windows 7 clients, Internet Information Services 7.5 for advanced web services, and enhanced PowerShell capability for automating remote server management.
