well, you dont get certifications just to get certified..its knowing your strengths that could be harness in full swing specially in a fast paced environment of technology, get certifications that really suites your needs..lets say you have taken oracle certifications, question is would it benefit you in the future?that you know in yourself you dont have the knack on programming..itsnot im discouraging you to take certifications..it yourself who could answer this questions..whats best for you

Two are different certifications, one is Database and anotehr is OS. If you want to move on the Data base direction then definitely Oracle is better . If you are planned on Linux administration then Red hat is better. Oracle with Redhat is very good for DBA, if not atleast Oracle.

So decide your career then choose.
Cheers,

    I have both Oracle and Redhat certifications. I found them both to be equally useful and abundantly more so than any class I have taken in school. However, this is assuming you will be in a small shop where the DBA is also a Linux admin (this also assumes you are running Oracle on Linux). If you are not, you probably don't have to worry about the Linux cert because Linux admins won't let you near the OS anyway (or vice versa). If you have the time and resources, get them both. R3boot is right though. Don't take them for the piece of paper. Take them for the enormous amount of information you will get. Both are a lot of work and require a lot of dedication.
