According to the official blog,
 
“Power BI Premium is available in a range of capacity sizes, each with different numbers of virtual cores and memory sizes that can scale as requirements change. Power BI Premium enables the same number of virtual cores an organization provisions in the cloud to also be deployed on-premises without the need to split the capacity. Choose Power BI in the cloud, or maintain reports on-premises with Power BI Report Server and move to the cloud at your pace.”
 
Not only this, Microsoft has made the Power BI Report Server generally available as a part of Power BI Premium. SQL Server Enterprise Edition customers with active Software Assurance (SA) have the rights to deploy Power BI Report Server through SA entitlement. In addition to this, Power BI Premium converges the Power BI Embedded with the Power BI service so as to bring more flexibility in the process of how Power BI content is embedded in apps.
