OS : Linux/Unices

DB version : 11.2 and higher

In 19C's Database Concept's glossary , Media recovery is defined as

"The application of redo or incremental backups to a data block or backup data file."

But, I would like to know more about the word 'Media' in 'Media Recovery' . By 'Media', does oracle mean backup media where RMAN backups are stored or the disk (ASM Diskgroup, Linux/Unix/Windows Filesystem) where the datafiles are going to be restored ?
