Direct connectivity support from Azure Analysis Services to Azure Tables
Currently using Azure Tables as a data source from within Azure Analysis Services requires a gateway. This makes a serverless architecture impossible forcing the need to run a VM simply to host a gateway. Please provide direct connectivity between these Azure services so a gateway isn't required.

We are encountering the same issue, strange as we enjoy using table storage very much.
How is this still not fixed?
Not sure if this is a port of some SSAS code or what, but I agree it makes no sense to install an on Prem Gateway for a cloud based table

Needing a VM to host a gateway in order to provide connectivity between AAS and Azure Table Storage is a discouraging factor to use neither AAS nor Azure table storage.
This makes no sense that you have to use gateway to access Azure Table Storage data. The data is in Azure NOT on-prem!
