Hi @powerbient,

 

1) Can we deploy the Power BI Report Server on Azure VM (IaaS) and used it for Prodution needs?

You can try the Azure VM image with Power BI Report Server. But there is no support for production scenarios with PBI-RS in Azure currently.

 

2) Can we use Azure SQL Database as the database for Power BI report Server instead on dedicated SQL server?

I'm afraid not. Please check the hardware and software requirements for Power BI Report Server.

 

Besides, here is a similar thread.

Hello Sir,

 

It's been 7 months. Are there any improvements in Power BI report server specific to my questions or the answers remain the same?

Thank You.

Same here, I'd also like to use an Azure SQL server db for my Reporting Server deployment.

Thank you Sir.
