Driven by stringent power and thermal constraints, heterogeneous multi-core processors, such as the ARM big-LITTLE architecture, are becoming increasingly popular. In this thesis, the use of low-power heterogeneous multi-cores as Microservers using web search as a motivational application is addressed. In particular, I propose a new family of scheduling policies for heterogeneous microservers that assign incoming search queries to available cores so as to optimize for performance metrics such as mean response time and service level agreements, while guaranteeing thermally-safe operation.
