Pro license - Max Dataset size

Hi,

 

    Can someone confirm if the max dataset size (import mode & incremental refresh) in Power BI service for a pro user is 1 GB or 10 GB pls?

Group storage limit is being shown as 10GB, so if max dataset size is 1 GB - does it mean there can be up to 10 different datasets with 1 GB size? or can have one dataset with up 10 GB in size ?

 

If the size grows over max limit, will the dataset become unusable? 

Do reports still continue to work? Is there any workaround besides cutting down on data within the model? ( dont say purchase premium license)

 

 

-Rakesh

Re: Pro license - Max Dataset size

Hi @RakeshSinghr 

 

The max dataset size is 1GB, but please note that "so if max dataset size is 1 GB - does it mean there can be up to 10 different datasets with 1 GB size", it's not very incorrect. as we know, the workspace storage is 10GB, but when we refresh the 1GB dataset , actually we need 2GB storage size, so if you have 10 datasets with 1GB size, the refresh is probable not working.

 

I believe you can get more hints from this official document:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-admin-manage-your-data-storage-in-power-bi 

There is a 1 GB limit per dataset that is imported into Power BI. If you have chosen to keep the Excel experience, instead of importing the data, the limit is 250 MB for the dataset.

 

 

For optimize the model, you can refer to the details below:

Re: Pro license - Max Dataset size

Hi there

The max dataset/pbix size is 1GB.

If the dataset/pbix size grows beyond 1GB the refreshing of the dataset will fail.

You still will be able to use the dataset and reports.

To make it smaller i would use DAX studio and see which columns are taking the most space and look to make them smaller or remove them. Otherwise your only option then is Power BI Premium
