  • Hi,
    We are looking out for power bi on premise version. But the power bi premium license cost is huge for us. and even our data is large enough (more than 10 GB of course) so cant use pro version. Another thing we are looking out for on-premise version only.

    If we forget about the data capacity part of it, Is there any way to use power bi pro version on premise, how secure is the data gateway?

    What is the best way for us to work with power bi. Our management is pretty impressed with the power bi interactive dashboards and wish to use it as a part of our product’s reporting.

    Looking out for your reply.


    • Hi Gourangi.
      with Pro; you will have 10GB Space in your power bi account, but every model (*.pbix) file cannot exceed 1GB.
      If your data size is so big, then I suggest using LiveQuery or DirectQuery. Your Power BI functionality will be limited though. but that is the way to go without premium. Data gateway connection is secure. it only requires outbound ports to be open. with LiveQuery or DirectQuery, you can manage your model in SSAS or SQL Server or other supported data sources, and use Power BI just for visualization.

      • Hi Reza,
        Many thanks for your kind reply.
        So you mean to say, If I use live connection to my SSAS cube and still i can use Pro version? So in this case I don’t have to worry about data size part of it.
        Please clarify.
