At Ignite 2019 Microsoft announced the public preview of large datasets in Power BI Premium. This is a significant milestone as now datasets can grow up to the capacity’s maximum memory (previously, the max size was 10 GB with P3 plan), thus opening the possibility of deploying organizational semantic models to Power BI. I consider this feature mostly suitable for organizational BI as I don’t imagine business users dealing with such large data volumes. I tested large datasets during its private preview, and I’d like to share some notes.
Teo has some open questions, and I’d like to see this shifted down to SSAS too.
