Hi,

I am trying to get all my telemetry data into PowerBI.

1) So i am using application insights to capture telemetry data and then storing this data into azure blob storage ( because application insights only allow for limited time storage).
Then i am using PowerBi azure storage connector to PowerBI.

2) The problem is data is way too big(eg 100 gb of data in last 2 weeks and increasing). PowerBi refresh cant handle this much data. I even tried to reduce the rows and columns applying all the best practices. But the data is too large.

Current data infrastructure

Application insight -> Azure storage -> PowerBI
What tool/method i should use

  1. Direct query
  2. Azure data explorer
  3. Any other tool/method

The final data insight/dashboard should be in PowerBI

Thank you and have a ncie day !

Regards,
Rushank Patil

    Hi there,

    Application Insights integrated with Log Analytics could store data up to 730 days. In most cases it's more than enough, no?

    It's not a cheapest solution but most easily to maintain and configure for PowerBI
