SSRS support for Power BI - in technical Preview!

If you love Power BI, but want a localized server option using SSRS, well its coming.

Announced on October 25, 2016 on the Power BI blog, they are releasing it into technical preview.   For this first review, you'll need an Azure account. No mention of when a local, on-premises preview will be available, but still this is great news.

See:  Technical Preview of Power BI reports in SQL Server Reporting Services

Video  - here's a video showing Power BI against SSRS 2016

Can I try it out on-premises?  

Ok, what you really want is to run a localized VM version.  Christopher Finlan has added a posting that outlines how you can download the VM from Azure and get it up and running as a localized VM. Find that post here:  How to run the Technical Preview of Power BI Reports in SQL Server Reporting Services on-prem using Hyper-V
