2.Is it free use for office 365 account..?

3.when i publish the report to web service,will the dataset gets uploaded to cloud(If yes,please give me some links,article for refernce)..?

1. No, unless you need to refresh on-premises data from the cloud and then you need to install a gateway service (can run on any computer and is free to use)

 

2. Yes but you can also purchase a Pro license for $9.99/month

 

3. Yes if you use import when you connect to your data. No if you use DirectQuery but you would definitely need the gateway at that point and you would need to have a Pro account.
