Fundamentally they are the exact same product, however there are a few differences in the level of access you have to some of the performance tuning elements, and of course you dont have direct access to the configuration files for Splunk Cloud.

Most settings can be managed via the Cloud UI, and for some specifc use cases you can ask Splunk Support to make changes which would need access to the files directly.

Most applictions and TA's can be deployed to both platforms, but there are some specialist applications which can not be deployed to Splunk cloud.

To collect data from PA, you install a heavy forwarder on site and install the PA-TA onto your heavy forwarder where you have full contol. Your HF then sends your log data to either Splunk Enterprise (on Prem) or Splunk Cloud.

If my comment helps, please give it a thumbs up!

An alternative to installing the PA app on an HF is to send data from the PA to syslog and use a UF on the syslog server to send to SplunkCloud.
