Cost to upgrade from Windows Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2

We have a legacy server that we need to do an in place upgrade to. We would like to go from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2.

1. Is there a cost to do so
2. Where do we source R2 from at this point?

Thanks.
Windows Server 2008

Server 2008 R2 is 64-bit and you cannot perform such an upgrade in place. That is always true for 32-bit to 64-bit conversions.

Since you have to reinstall anyway, what about moving to Server 2012 R2 (or even 2016)
