    Anybody have experience deciding between the different SKUs for Power BI embedded?

    I am digging through the documentation now.  It sounds like A SKU gives you flexibility to scale up and down during development and then Premium has longer term commitments but is better suited for production performance requirements.  I am also digging into egress charges for the A SKU.  Anything else that I should consider or is important for evaluation of embedded?

    Hi Charles !

    Did you also check into alternate approach of having Power BI (Premium) P SKU


    It would be nice if you shared the link you are referencing from docs so we could compare the options available.

    Hi @Charles Elwood,

    I think A SKUs are a good start for the dev environment setup.

    The P SKUs aka Premium, will probably require a yearly commitment, someone please correct me if I am wrong here.

    The A SKUs should be billed monthly and as you rightly said that they can be scaled up and down as per the requirement.

    Thank you,
