I do not understand  your question.

Are you asking:
   Can I install a new instance of SQL Server from Team Foundation Server?
or
   Can I deploy SQL Database Projects from Team Foundation Server?

What do you mean by "new foundations server"?

Is this a physical box or is this a software service?

If it is a physical box please describe the CPU, RAM, and Storage configuration, including the number and/or size of each.

Now I understand.

You have 4 CPUs, 32 Gig of RAM, and 1TB of available RAID 1 storage (mirrored data)

Yes, SQL Server 2008 will install on the new box.

I do not understand why you would install such an old version of SQL Server on a shiny new box, but so it goes...

"Principal Editions of SQL Server 2016" from here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506.aspx#TOP_Principal

Which looks like it does install on Foundation server. This also applied to SQL 2012. I assume it applies to 2014 as well. Check and see if the client has a software assurance agreement under open license. You might be able to upgrade the SQL.
