difference between On-Premises Gateway and Report Server

Hi Gurus

 

Sorry if my question is too dumb as still I'm learning Power BI from youtube.

 

Initially when I started using Power BI almost 1.5 years before, I knew only Personal or On-Premises Gateway to view up-to-date data on my reports/dashboards.

But now while I'm returning to Power BI after 6 months, I'm also seeing some lectures of Power BI Report Server.

Though I've viewed some tutorials, but still I couldn't find the difference between On-Premises Gateway and Report Server.

Are they just synonyms or different products?

Can you please explain me this?

 

Thanks

That is correct and I believe that you make that decision at install time.

No, they are different things. The gateways are intended for the Power BI Service (cloud) to access on-premises data.

 

The Report Server is designed to be able to publish reports on-premises instead of publishing to the Service (cloud).

Thank you so much Greg

 

One last thing:

 

I've tried to search the Gateway download link and it has taken me to a page:

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53127

 

It's not showing whether it's a Personal Gateway or Enterprise Gateway.

 

To my understanding, Personal Gateway I can use at my home or my individual PC and Enterprise Gateway on an Organization's Server.

 

Am I right ?

 

Thanks in advance
