network adice

Not a network guru so please hang in there.

I have pfsense setup as a bridge (no vlans and only 2 ports) thats connected to a ProCurve Switch 3400cl-24G (J4905A) to port 24.

on ports 1 and 2 i have ESXi with a public facing IP so i can access the Host
Server has 2xon-board and 1xqaud intel. the quad nic is for iSCSI traffic only (

For storage i run OpenFiler it has 4 ip address for each nic. It doesn't have anyway connecting to the internet again its

From the ESXi each VM gets a 2nd nic if they need access to the network...

So my question is... Is there a better way to do this? Should i configure the switch for vlans?

current config...
