My book is published!

Posted by Kamran Agayev A. on September 13th, 2013

My book is out!

I would like to announce to all my fellow DBA friends that my book is published and is available at Amazon.


It took me more than one year to write it. 3 years ago I got an email from Rampant Techpress where they asked me if I can write a book about RMAN Backup and Recovery. I wasn’t ready at that time, but decided to accept that challenge and agreed. The first man came in my mind to help me at that time was my friend Aman Sharma. He also agreed and we started the journey together.

After writing the first chapter I realized that we really need to have technical reviewers, so I asked Syed Sabdar and Hemant K. Chitale if they can help us. Fortunately they agreed.  I would like to thank them both as they did a great job and made a lot of corrections

All chapters are based on practical scenarios and deep research and I hope it will help you to understand RMAN in depth, to create your own RMAN backup strategy and to recover from any type of failures you can face in your production database. There’re a lot of scenarios under each chapter with an explanation and step by step guide to help you to reproduce them on your test environment

    I think, translation is not necessary, DBA must know English :-)
    But not everyone have a possibility to order abroad or trust Russian Post 😀
