Power BI Report Server Evaluation/Developer Editions

Power BI Report Server is available in two free editions:
- Evaluation (180 days)
and
- Developer.

1) What is the difference between them?
2) Is there any technical limitation comparing to the production edition?

Same product, same features, just different licenses.

Jon-Heide, thank you for your answer!
a) Could you please tell, what is the difference between Evaluation and Developer licenses?

b) Also as I understood, there is no technical limitation comparing to the production edition, correct?

Hi @duhast2017,

 

1. The Evaluation will expired after 180 days. And the Developer can't be used for business purpose. 

2. Both Evaluation and Developer provide same technical features.

Can you please define the " Business purpose"  ?

Re: Power BI Report Server Evaluation/Developer Editions

Business Purpose means production environment. I think to clarify this means to use PBIRS to deliver reports and/or data to end users with production data. The developer edition can be used to develop reports in a development environment, this reports can be moved up to a production environment that has the appropriate production environment licensing.
