Microsoft released a premium version of Power BI with capacity based licensing. Since the release of Power BI three years ago, Microsoft has fast-tracked the addition of new tools, integration capabilities and scale of its self-service visualization offering.
Power BI Premium is offered in a variety of capacities, virtual core and memory sizes, depending on the requirements of the application. Microsoft posted a Power BI Premium calculator to help customers estimate the configurations they’ll need and the monthly costs.
With this move, Microsoft is trying to expand it reach of data visualization technology.
