In theory, yes.  For practical purposes, you'd probably want to limit it to ~1000 or so.

Maximum is 32,767, however, best way to do is to add few databases, monitor resources and performance and if all okay then add more.  More databases can be accommodated if you have large amount of memory and disk space which has lots of spindles (i.e. RAID arrays which lots of disks).

Be careful when comparing Oracle Databases and Instances with SQL Server. Their definition aren't the same for both RDBMS. Actually an Oracle database it's pretty much like a SQL Server instance and the Oracle instance it's like to be a SQL Server database.
