Entity store is an operational data store that lets an administrator or power user stage aggregate measurements in a dedicated data store for reporting and analytics. Customers can use Microsoft Power BI DirectQuery models together with entity store to enable high-volume, near-real-time analytical reporting over large volumes of data. Data from the transactional store is synced in real time and made available in the entity store.

Entity store will be made available to all customers on version 10.0 and later with all default aggregates defined and synced in near real time for on-premises. On-premises customers will get the ability to use the ready-made reports authored against entity store and deploy to their own Power BI subscription. However, on-premises deployments will not contain Analytical workspaces.
