The web application is in ASP.NET and Sql Server and is growing much faster than anticipated.

Where can I find an expert who has previously had experience of going from a small website to solution used daily by thousands? Someone who can review our system and give us advice on performance improvements and updating our coding practices.

Since you are in the Microsoft technologies, I would like to tell you they have Microsoft Innovation Centers all around the world filled with guys paid to help you.

I had the chance to ask the exact same question as you regarding SQL Server about an application I worked on that was generating millions records.

The local Microsoft Evangelist explained me in less than 15 minutes all I needed to know to solve my problem. So I learn about memory & cpu instances, SAN integration, etc.

They will eventually redirect you to a local partner that is there to help you as well.
