Power BI Premium – Scale large deployments

  • Gain dedicated capacity you allocate, scale, and control
  • Distribute and embed content without purchasing per-user licenses
  • Publish reports on-premises with Power BI Report Server

Power BI Premium provides resources dedicated to running the Power BI service for your organization or team, giving you more dependable performance and larger data volumes. Premium also enables widespread distribution of content without requiring you to purchase per-user licenses for viewers.

Power BI Premium is licensed by capacity. This means that a Power BI Pro licence will still be required for users publishing reports, but consumers will no longer need to be licensed if their organisation is covered by Power BI Premium.

How does Capacity based Licensing work?

  • Power Bi Premium is licensed by Nodes. A node is a way of purchasing a certain number of virtual cores, memory and bandwidth, dedicated to that customer, that will be sufficient to power the required BI system.
  • With Power BI Report Server, you are able to do Hybrid Deployments. When you purchase Power BI Premium you can use the same number of cores that you’ve purchased in the cloud with Power BI Report Server on-premises.

How does one calculate how much capacity is required?

There is a calculator available to help you determine how much capacity is required. We recommend you use the calculator to spec your scenario and engage with us for pricing.

Report Server for Hybrid Deployments:

Power BI Report Server is an on-premises server that enables Power BI Pro users to publish Power BI reports and distribute them broadly across the enterprise, without requiring report consumers to be licensed individually per user. Organizations now have the flexibility to publish their Power BI reports to the cloud (Power BI service), or manage them on-premises (Power BI Report Server) and move to the cloud at their pace.

Power BI Embedded:

Power BI Embedded is an Azure service that enables ISVs and app developers to surface Power BI data experiences within their applications. As a developer, you’ve built applications, and those applications have their own users and distinct set of features. Those apps may also happen to have some built-in data elements like charts and reports that can now be powered by Microsoft Power BI Embedded. You don’t need a Power BI account to use your app. You can continue to sign in to your application just like before, and view and interact with the Power BI reporting experience without requiring any additional licensing.
