Premium EM1/2/3 plans clarification



I was going through Power BI documentation and some things are not clear regarding the new EM premium plans.


1) Are the Premium EM plans same as power bi embeded plans?

2) If yes what is the difference between EM and P1/2/3 plans?

3) What would be the data storage limits offered by the EM plans?

4) Cost estimate of EM plans in case they are different from power bi embeded plans

5) Do the EM plans support sharing of dashboard with non pro users?


Thanks & Regards,

You can research so common question about Power BI premium here, for example: How is Power BI Pro different than Power BI Premium? Why is Power BI Premium necessary? Do I need Power BI Pro to use Power BI Premium? etc.

And you can refer to some similar threads below.

Thanks for replying to the post.


I understand the differnces between Pro and Premium and why premium is necessary. My main question is around the difference between Power BI Embeded instance that we can create in Azure and Power BI EM Premium instances. Microsoft has not documented the Capabilities of EM Premium instances and also the cost, may be because it is still in early stages, but would like to know more about it so that can make a decision on which Tier to choose. 


Also it's mentioned that Premium EM 1 / 2 are only available through volume licensing, when we can easily create a Tier 1 / 2 Power BI embeded instance in Azure. So the question is on difference between these two and why did Microsoft choose similar naming convention for 2 different services to add to the confusion.


Thanks & Regards,
