Announcing backup and restore improvements for large datasets near the size limit

Thanks to the latest backup and restore improvements, you can now restore a backup file even when the dataset size is near the Power BI Premium SKU limitation. You no longer need to be concerned that dataset size limits impact restorability. When restoring a dataset with the /forceRestore option, Power BI will try its best to perform the restore operation even when the available memory is limited.

Announcing general availability of the ExecuteQueries REST API

We are happy to announce that the ExecuteQueries REST API is now GA. By using this REST API, you can query datasets in Power BI from practically any modern environment on any platform, as long as you can authenticate with Azure Active Directory (AAD) and construct a Web request. The query functionality is comparable to XMLA read access, yet avoids dependencies on Analysis Services client libraries, requires no connection to XMLA endpoints, and works in Premium workspaces as well as in ordinary workspaces.

Announcing general availability of automatic aggregations

Today, we are excited to announce General Availability (GA) of automatic aggregations, along with several important improvements. By using automatic aggregations in Power BI Premium, you can unlock cloud-scale data volumes for interactive analysis. Automatic aggregations import data into the dataset only at the aggregated level while leaving the detail data at the source to minimize data duplication. In this way, most BI queries can benefit from Power BI’s blazing fast query performance in import mode, while occasional detail queries can still work transparently against the data source in DirectQuery mode.
