I am a newbie to this site . I wanted to know whether we can configure single data guard for multiple database (instances), has this been done anytime in the past .
I know this sounds weird but we are a small business and growing at rapid rate. we want to cut down the cost at the same time.
Besides this do you know any other method or approach that is practical and economical to synchronise database between multiple production system into centralised DR system
Sorry, If I posted it in the wrong section.
Thanks in advance for your help and time.

Thanks for your reply.
It is very informative, do you find any other way of doing it.
So, by your answer we can say that the oracle can't serve one dataguard as both logical and physical standby for two different databases.
A standby database cannot behave as both physical and logical standby at the same time. As I said earlier, a primary database can have multiple standby databases, you can have both logical and physical standby databases for your single primary provided the logical and physical standby databases are 2 databases and not just 1 database
