SSAS Multidimensional Cube

Hello Experts Exchange
I am new to SSAS and I have a few SSAS Cubes at work, I am using a new application from Microsoft called Power BI.

What is a Multidimensional Cube?

Power BI does not support a live connection to a Multidimensional Cubes, but from what I found on the internet that Multidimensional Cubes are the default for SSAS.

So if some one could explain what a Multidimensional Cube is and what alternatives there are in SSAS that would be great?
