Yes it is, just as long as in the 2008 to 2012 R2 example the 2008 installation is 64-bit, since there is no option for 32-bit installations with 2008 R2 and beyond, and no way to upgrade from 32-bit to 64-bit.

Below is a link with some upgrade paths to Windows Server 2008 R2.
Second one Keith meant to say that if you have a 32-bit operating system you cannot upgrade to a higher level 64-bit operating system, and you cannot reach to R2 unless you install as new.
Hope it helps.
