Local Storage is secondary storage that is physically connected to a device; e.g. a Pc’s internal hard drive , a phone’s internal memory.
The connection is provided internally within the system unit. Note that external backing storage devices , although portable, are local storage devices by virtue of the fact that they are connected internally via ports or interfaces.
Cloud storage is provided over a computer network by a cloud service provider
The cloud service provider makes the storage available via an app or web interface (web application) via a web browser.
Examples include Google drive , Dropbox, onedrive etc.
