Prices are estimates only and are not intended as actual price quotes. Actual pricing may vary depending on the type of agreement entered with Microsoft, date of purchase, and the currency exchange rate. Prices are calculated based on US dollars and converted using London closing spot rates that are captured in the two business days prior to the last business day of the previous month end. If the two business days prior to the end of the month autumn on a bank holiday in major markets, the rate setting day is generally the day immediately preceding the two business days. This rate applies to all transactions during the forthcoming month. Sign in to the Azure pricing calculator to see pricing based on your current programme/offer with Microsoft. Contact an Azure sales specialist for more information on pricing or to request a price quote. See frequently asked questions about Azure pricing.

  • Customers can change the node type deployed as needed.

  • Power BI Embedded bills on a predictable hourly rate based on the type of node(s) deployed. Actual usage is computed to the second and billed hourly. For example, if an instance exists for 12 hours and 15 minutes in a month, your bill will show usage of 12.25 hours. If your instance is only active for 6 minutes, your bill will show usage of 0.1 hour.

  • Yes, users who publish BI content need to be licensed with Power BI Pro.

  • No, users viewing content do not need Power BI licences assigned to them.

  • When the service is paused the embedded content will not load, and you will not be charged for the service.

  • Power BI Embedded is for developers who build applications and want to use a third-party BI offering to visualise application data instead of building it themselves. Developers embed dashboards and reports into applications using Power BI Embedded. Power BI, on the other hand, is a software-as-a-service analytics solution that gives organisations a single view of their most critical business data.

  • Yes, however if you plan to use Power BI SaaS embedding you will need to use Power BI Premium through office (EM1-EM3; P1-P3).

  • The measure of peak renders per hour is provided as sizing guidance and it is not a licensing or throttling construct. Depending on the complexity of the model, volumes of data, and complexity of the reports, the exact number of peak renders per hour will vary. Scaling APIs are offered to help ensure a great customer experience at all times, as you can scale up or down to meet demand. As you approach and exceed the maximum thresholds for your node type, expect that visual load times will be affected.
