License for report server with Fabric

Hello,

 

I am trying to understand if the license for report server is included with a Fabric license. If anyone can point to any documentation that explains this I would appreciate it.

So hopefully there will be more information on Fabric and it's roadmap in the coming months. But since PBIRS currently requires a P1 at a minimum I would expect that since an F64=P1 then expecting to need at least an F64 is probably a safe bet.

Hello d_gosbell,

 

That is a good point and I found the documentation https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/fabric/enterprise/licenses that confirms a F64 = P1 which makes that a little to expensive for my company but might be able to go down the sql enterprise route.

@mwsmoley I have seen absolutely nothing regarding Fabric licensing including PBRS. Now, that said, my understanding of Premium licensing was that you were authorized to install PBRS on the same number of cores as you were authorized for in your Premium capacity. P1 = 8 cores. 

 

In *theory* Fabric licenses would authorize the same entitlement in the same way. But that is a big unknown really. Microsoft may put restrictions on it like that only applies to F64 and above kind of like Free license use instead of requiring Pro. 

 

Who knows really, it's all so half-baked at this point.

Hello Greg,

 

Thank you for repsonding.  I have to agree with your sentiment that some of fabric is half-baked and this is just something more to add to the list. Peronsally I do not understand how Microsoft is selling Fabric and yet still saying it is in preview with problems that seem to persist and no transparency on what and when stuff will be added or fixed. Yet the value propoition for this half-baked product is to good to pass up.
