Keeping them separate makes lots of sense. Modularity is an important
design pattern for enterprise data and the services around them.
Technically, there are many ways to implement separation. Triggers
work, but it would be a design decision that forces you to keep those
two services on the same system.
I would recommend using a technology that allows more flexibility for
future placement of databases. That would be a generalised replication
solution, though you might generalise further and adopt an ETL or real
time integration tool.
