Power BI online integrate into SharePoint on-prem. extranet Architecture

Power BI Embedded Online Licencing as of 22 Nov 2017:
Basically, there are 2 parts to licencing PowerBI online.
1.> You licence per the number of pages you render per hour.  You need to have the Power BI Embedded licences on infrastructure to serve up a certain number of requests per hour. So work out your peak number of page request per hour and licence for the appropriate plan.  The table below shows the Power BI Embedded plan you'll need to subscribe to:

PlanVirtual CPUsRAM (GB)Max Request per hour
A113300
A225600
A34101200
A48252400
A516504800
A6321009600
Note:  I believe the plan's can be scaled up or down instantly without display and pausing a service stops the Power BI embedded costs.  If you run over the Max requests per hour I believe the Power BI PaaS will still serve up page/reports but you will get an extra bill for the additional reports.

2.> You'll also need to purchase at least 1 Power BI Pro licence, that is used for: administration, content publishing, and development..
3.> As of time of writing (Nov 2017) the Microsoft Power BI Gateway does not offer High Availability (HA), but I'm sure it is coming soon.
4.>  A single account is used to connect to each source and RLS security has to be applied at the source (SQL SSAS), user table mapping is required.
