Devices are the underlying storage "devices" for databases. Dump
devices are for backups, ie. tape drive, f.s., etc.

Device is a logical form of the actual physical disks on which the
database resides. DumpDevice is the logical name for a backup file or
tape archive.
Both of these were introduced only by Sybase and most other DB vendors
like Oracle use the physical drive names directly without complicating
it by logical references.
