Maximum data storage / size limit and how to prevent the threshold point

Hello Experts, I’m a Power BI PRO User ,

Referenced to the power BI official link , we have a mximum data storage = 10GB


I’m In workspace (created by myself as ADMIN) and I want to confirm with you some informations :

1- I cannot exceed the 10 GB (maximum datastorage) ? If I can exceed : so it’s based on the total storage in the tenant (supposed the tenant contains 30 users)

2- The dataset F1 can exceed the 1GB because we have enough data storage size in the workspace (10GB) (screenshot from power BI service: manage data store) ?

3- how can we understand the model size limit 1G and how we can test if our PIBX exceed this model size limit or no?

10 GB is a soft limit. It only applies to the initial dataset load.  You can far exceed that by using incremental refresh - up to the capacity memory limit, or (allegedly) even beyond that.
