For SQL Server 2008 Feature Pack, Itanium downloads were listed separately as IA64 packages.  Those listings are not present on the SQL Server 2012 Feature Pack page so I think you should make sure before you buy it.

I have refer to
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506.aspx for the requirement before and it didn't says that it does not support Itanium based servers.

Thats why I'm uncertain.

Processor Type
    x64 Processor: AMD Opteron, AMD Athlon 64, Intel Xeon with Intel EM64T support, Intel Pentium IV with EM64T support
    x86 Processor: Pentium III-compatible processor or faster

and Itanium based servers is basically Intel 64, so it should work.
anyhow, software is normally "independant" of hardware, as the OS does the abstraction of it.

I thought I'd seen it somewhere.  Here's an article about Microsoft ending support for Itanium.  http://news.cnet.com/8301-13860_3-20001746-56.html

And the blog post: http://blogs.technet.com/b/windowsserver/archive/2010/04/02/windows-server-2008-r2-to-phase-out-itanium.aspx
