Sainath's Advice on Thursday, June 23, 2011 :
While it is true that Oracle has a huge market share you will observe in the long run no organization usually operates only on 1 database. It is common to see Oracle, SQL Server and even Sybase particularly if it is a traditional financial entity.
As a DBA, particularly in the maintenance role, you will be expected to work in multiple databases if required. Gaining knowledge in multiple areas is not a negative in itself. However, if you wish to become a specialist Oracle DBA you will also need to upscale your skills in totality in terms of certifications backed up with quaity real world experience.
