Is it possible for a node to host multiple cluster in relation to Always On AG

In my example, I have 3 database servers with their own DR servers, own availability group, own clusters. Is it possible to setup another server which can be part of the 3 clusters and be a secondary replica on each of them?

As I understand your requirement to make DR site of the primary cluster. These two options you have.

If you have sufficient network bandwidth that can replicate data from the head office to DR site properly then

  1. You can use the file-share quorum and add DR nodes into the cluster and add the nodes to AG.
  2. Upgrading SQL Server to 2016 will give you an additional advantage of using Distributed Availability Group. It helps to synchronize AG databases across the cluster.
