      FAQ about Power BI on-premises connectivity

      Will I need multiple gateways to connect to different cloud services?

      No, just one. You can use a single gateway to connect to cloud services like Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, and Azure.

      How will the Power BI gateway keep my on-premises data secure?

      Azure Service Bus provides the security between Power BI and your on-premises data gateway. By encrypting the credentials your gateway administrators create, the service protects your data in the cloud and within the gateway.

      What is the difference between the gateway's standard and personal modes?

      The main differences are:

      • standard mode works with multiple cloud services (personal mode only works with Power BI)
      • standard mode has DirectQuery support, while personal mode doesn’t
      • standard mode allows a live connection to Analysis Services
      • standard mode serves multiple users with access control per data source
      • personal mode can run as an app for users who aren’t administrators
      • personal mode can run as a single user with your credentials
      What are the Power BI Report Server licensing options?

      The Power BI Premium licence includes Power BI Report Server for on-premises reporting, as well as dedicated cloud capacity. So this is a good option for organisations looking for a Power BI hybrid approach.
