Hi, @melo-loadsmart 

The model size limit for premium per user is 100GB Per User.

I checked this document (Power BI Premium Per User FAQ ), but I didn’t find any description about 10GB.

The document has been updated recently, please recheck the content .

Hi @cassidy 

 

I would suggest that with 60GB of data that could be much smaller. as you said your dataset is 1.8GB in size which would easily fit into the 100GB limit

 

The best thing to do is it to test this with a dataset to make sure it works as expected.

Not 100% true. If the model is 50Gb to refresh it needs another 50Gb to put it in memory. That is the 100Gb the wait paper is talking about. So the max model size is 50 Gb. At least that is what I understood

Hi @melo-loadsmart 


The initial upload limit of the PBIX file size is limited to 10GB


The total dataset memory size once expanded within the Power BI Service is 100GB.

@GilbertQ  - Can you expand on 

The total dataset memory size once expanded within the Power BI Service is 100GB.


I'm considering moving from Premium Capacity to Premium Per User (we only have 100 or so Users), but I noticed the main difference was the limit moving down from 400GB to 100GB.  

 

Our main Dataset is a 1.8GB file, but it contains maybe around 60GB of data (mostly coming from Dataflows).  How can you tell how much memory you are actually using with a Dataset in Service?

Hi @cassidy 

 

@GilbertQ has a really good blog on how to check the size of your model once it's in the service: How to use Vertipaq Analyzer with DAX Studio for Power BI Model analysis - Reporting/Analytics Made ...
