The article relates to SQL Server 2012, not Windows 2012 R2 w/ SQL 2008 R2. I would assume it IS supported because its a minor revision to Windows 2012. Guess there's one way to find out...

We can monitor Microsoft site about Windows Server 2012 R2 and get detail information about it after its release. Additionally, I want to share a link about using SQL Server 2008 R2 with Windows Server 2012.
