Feature details

Power BI datasets can store data in a highly compressed, in-memory cache for optimized query performance. This enables fast user interactivity over large datasets. Until now, datasets in Power BI Premium have been limited to 10 GB after compression. With large models, we will remove this limitation and allow dataset sizes limited only by the capacity size. This will bring Power BI dataset sizes to parity with Azure Analysis Services model sizes.
