Comparison? ASP.NET vs good old ASP with C++ COMs?

Folks,

I have a client who will likely be looking at ASP.NET in the near
future. They have an internal developer who is convinced there are
"scalability problems" with ASP.NET. This client has a very large, very
critical, growing ASP app that I built with them in classic ASP, so they
are interested in the benefits of moving up to something better.

I want to convince them to go with ASP.NET -- preferrably VB.NET, but C#
would be fine too. This internal dude wants them to stick with ASP and
rewrite the business code in C++.

I would like to put some hard numbers in front of the client, to show
the higherups that ASP.NET will be the better choice in terms of
performance & scalability. Or if the numbers are just not that
compelling, that's fine; I can argue for all the other ASP.NET benefits
of management, installation, stability, etc.

But for the life of me, I can't find any industry comparison results to
present to this client. I know about the one comparison with the Java
petshop thing, but we're not looking at Java. I want to show him them
the numbers between C++ and ASP.NET (again, either VB.NET or C#).

Links? Suggestions?

Chris,
Thanks, yes, this is excellent stuff. I'm keeping the link, to help
make the case when the day comes.

This article does a nice job of presenting how good ASP.NET could be in
terms of scalability, etc. for one company. But the comparison here is
between Java and .NET. I need to make the case for .NET versus C++ with
COM+. Anything more you can suggest, would be much appreciated.
