  • Large Datasets in Premium – While required for datasets to grow beyond 10 GB, enabling the Large dataset storage format setting has additional benefits. If you’re planning to use XMLA endpoint based tools for dataset write operations, be sure to enable the setting, even for datasets that you wouldn’t necessarily characterize as a large dataset. When enabled, the large dataset storage format can improve XMLA write operations performance.
