Hosting import query gateway on a service instead of a personal computer, is it possible?

Hi,

 

We need to connect to Amazon RDS MySQL intances. https://docs.microsoft.com/nl-nl/power-bi/power-bi-data-sources According to this schema we cannot use direct/live query for this. Which leaves us with Import query.

 

We do not want to have to host a gateway on a personal computer 24/7 for the datarefresh we plan to do every 30 minutes. Is it possible to install the gateway on some kind of service that runs 24/7? (e.g. amazon instances or azure)

 

Kind regards

Hi @StinoVerani ,

 

You are right you need to install the gateway in a server, But currently the gateway can be installed only in a Windows Server. 

 

Using windows Server you are good to go.

 

Make sure that windows server ports for as per this instruction
