Virtualizing network environment.

I want to virtualize a network environment for reasons of resources and scalability. They would be 4 departments separated by VLANs. And I want to do it with Proxmox to virtualize the machines, and OVS for VLANs and internal routing. Proxmox has a group of 3 nodes, Ceph for distributed storage and high availability. Clients (100-150 users) will connect through the web to the Proxmox server, having access only to the machines that correspond to their department. Here is an example of logical addressing. The Proxmon server has two network cards, and switch0 would correspond to department1.
I'm missing the actual question? Is your thread about sharing your setup or do you have any specific issue or is it just a blueprint someone else should take a look at?

I would like to know if the logic is correct with the capture example.
I think the physical network communicates with Proxmox and have access through permissions to the VM's of their corresponding department (VLAN 10, 20 ...)
In case of creating physical subnets for each department:
switch0 network
switch1 network
with adding static routes to the router, will i reach the proxmox from any client on the network?.

Thanks for answering.
