There is only SP1 Beta released a few days back for Windows Server 2008 R2, THe link to this Beta SP1 is below

If you are using WIndows Server 2008 Standard or Enterprise (Not R2) then you can install the SP2

If you are working Production environment, I will suggest not to Intall the SP1 Beta, utill the Service Pack is released for good. If you want to install in test lab, you can give it a try.
