Watch this video first!

Here are few reasons to take this course

Arun and his DBA Genesis crew are simply the best. He knows how to prepare you for all the challenges you will meet. Thanks to him I know so much about OS, I can configure and partition almost all types in Virtual box. He makes you do things that are not even part of the course as long as it will help you grow. The lectures are based on real time experience and I love the labs.
The response time to problems submitted is one of the shortest I have had. The only delay I get sometimes is due to time zones difference between US and India.
If you want to invest in becoming a DBA, I would strongly recommend you consider Arun (DBA Genesis)

Frequently Asked Questions

Where to start when it comes to RMAN?
Start by learning user managed backups. Off course no one uses it but it makes your RMAN understanding very easy. Then proceed with RMAN backups, recovery, cloning and other advance topics.
What if I don't learn RMAN?
For a DBA, it's very critical to design backup strategies for different database sizes. When it comes to production database crash, you must be an expert to recovery database quickly.
How do I download course material?
All the scripts / pdf files are attached below each video lecture. You get access to download all the scripts / pdf files inside the lectures.
Will you provide any remote lab for lab practice?
The course contains step by step instructions on how to setup your own lab for practice. So you can configure your own test lab
How do I ask questions or clear my doubts?
Each video lecture has a comment box below the video where you can directly write your questions and our team will answer within 8 hrs. You can also send email to [email protected] with your query and our team will respond within 24 hrs. In case your doubt needs special attention, we will setup an online meeting with the instructor to resolve the issue.
There are so many recovery scenarios, how do I learn all of them?
You need not learn all the recovery scenarios because you will not face all the scenarios in your job! You must get foundation correct, know how recovery works and then any crash would be recoverable.
Production system crashed, how do I recovery it fast?
Speed of recovery depends upon the type of backup strategy implemented. I have covered different types of recovery based on different backup types inside the course along with downloadable scripts!

I've been working as a DBA since 2009 and I was surprised to see how much I do not know about RMAN, especially the incremental backups and PITR recovery.
