Hi @Kamaizziati,

2. The capcity of Power Bi Premium is apply to all user or organization?

 


 

1.Though you have Power BI Premium, you also need to have Power BI Pro to publish reports, share dashboards, collaborate with colleagues in workspaces and engage in other related activities.

 

2.Yes, you are right. To start using a Power BI Premium capacity, you need to assign a workspace to a capacity.

 

For more details about Power BI Premium vs Power Bi Pro, you could have a reference of this article.

Re: Power BI Premium vs Power Bi Pro

Think of Power BI Pro as a per user license (and you will need it for any report creator that wants to publish their report). Power BI premium is licensed by capacity (think of it as buying your own server in the cloud - dedicated capacity). As a consumer, you have 2 options - you can either get Pro license or you can read reports for free as long as it is hosted in a Premium capacity. 

 

So if you are buying Premium, you will get Pro for your report creators and just the Premium node for your consumers. You can run any number of users in a Premium node, however like every server, if you over-utilize it, you might end up with slow reports or even timeouts. This is why we recommend hardware sizing the Premium nodes (you have different capacities) based on the number of users - https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/calculator/

 

For data storage, each Pro user gets 10 GB storage space. In Premium, you get 100 TB for the whole server.
