What is best setup practice for data gateway in the cloud?

Hello, we setup a data gateway on a windows server in azure to refresh our report on Power BI Service. Our data is taken from a different azure server. So both are in the cloud.

 

Is it better to install our gateway on the same azure server that our data is on or is it better to have them on a seperate server. What is the best option performance wise?

hi, @vincent2369 

First, you need to confirm that if your data source needs a gateway

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-gateway-onprem

Then install a gateway as normal

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-gateway-install

There is no need to install gateway on the same azure server that data is on.

For gateway performance, please refer to:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-gateway-performance-monitoring
