You could already download windows server 2012 R2 from teched or msdn but now the R2 product is general availability

At the heart of the Microsoft Cloud OS vision, Windows Server 2012 R2 brings Microsoft’s experience delivering global-scale cloud services into your infrastructure. Windows Server 2012 R2 offers exciting new features and enhancements across virtualization, storage, networking, virtual desktop infrastructure, access and information protection, and more.

These are new Posters for Windows Server 2012 R2 including Hyper-v 3.0

  • Generation 2 Virtual Machines GA
  • Hyper-V and Failover Clustering GA
  • Session Modes GA
  • Upgrading Your Private Cloud GA
  • Live Migration GA
  • Hyper-V Storage GA
  • Hyper-V Virtual Hard Disk Sharing GA
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Component Architecture GA

 

Hyper-V Server is a dedicated stand-alone product that contains the hypervisor, Windows Server driver model, virtualization capabilities, and supporting components such as failover clustering, but does not contain the robust set of features and roles as the Windows Server operating system. As a result, Hyper-V Server produces a small footprint and requires minimal overhead. Organizations consolidating servers where no new Windows Server licenses are required or where the servers being consolidated are running an alternative OS may want to consider Hyper-V Server.
