Media Storage

Media storage is a tool you can use to organize and access miscellaneous media files on the server. The path to the physical location of the files is determined by the Base URL configuration. Files in media storage can be accessed from the editor while working on pages and static blocks. Media storage is usually located in the file system on the same server as the Magento program files. Alternatively, the files can be managed in a database, or located on a separate server or content delivery network.
