Power BI Premium Private Connectivity

Can someone please explain the connectivity options for Power BI Premium? We were told by a Microsoft representitive that Power BI Premium would allow us to communicate from Power BI Service to our Firewalled Storage accounts over private networking.


However, I have been unable to find any documentation on this. Currently Power BI Service has a large address range that you must add to your Firewall to allow Dataflows for example access to your DataLake.


Does Power BI Premium narrow that large address range down? Can you specify address ranges where your dedicated instance will be hosted etc?

Is this feature?

But even Pro users can use it.

Hi - I'm not sure how the azure relay service would integrate with Power BI. 

The second solution is concerning application gateways. We have looked at power Bi gateway previously but didn't really want to stand up any infrastructure such as VMs in the cloud that we would have to support. 

Are the only options available to us to use a gateway - either Power BI or Application?
