Microsoft Confirms Itanium Sunset

All of the servers currently support the Tukwila state-of-the-art Itanium chip

Microsoft Session at Cloud Expo

Told ya so. Microsoft acknowledged in a blog Friday that it'll be terminating Itanium support with Windows Server 2008 R2 because, it says, the x86 has effectively caught up with the scalability and reliability needed for today's mission-critical workloads - anyway the chip never reached critical mass. SQL Server 2008 R2 and Visual Studio 2010 will be the end of the line for the Itanium too. All of the servers currently support the Tukwila state-of-the-art Itanium chip. Microsoft's life-cycle support will finally end on July 9, 2013, while extended support will go on until July 10, 2018.
