Power BI Gateway
MS PowerBI Gateway creates the connection between MS PowerBI cloud-based data analysis ecosystem and the INDEXIMA CLUSTER located on-premises. MS Gateway is an application that can be installed on any server in the local domain. The MS PowerBI Gateway is responsible for creating the connection and passing data through.
MS Gateway (and MS PowerBI Desktop) requires:
