Hi there;

Yes, there are 32-bit versions too, Standard, Enterprise and Datacenter are the editions for 32-bit ones.

Windows Server 2008 R2 is not available in 32-bit editions, but only 64-bit.
It is only available in 64-bit version. Windows 2008 is available in 32-bit editions.
Also, Windows 7 is the last client OS which was released in 32-bit version.

Check this from the same like which you provide:

Leveraging sophisticated CPU architectures

Windows Server 2008 R2 is the first Windows operating system to be offered for only 64-bit processors. With customers being unable to purchase a 32-bit server CPU for over two years, the performance and reliability advantages to moving to this architecture were too beneficial to ignore.
