I guess we could breed them like crazy and then just burn them to fuel the servers. . .

You don't need tribbles or hamsters.

You need Guinea Pigs. The average guinea pig can run at speeds of 19.5 meters per second for sustained periods. If provided with suitable encouragement (read: scared out of its mind), it can sprint up to 50 miles per hour, although these sprints tend to last only 5-19 seconds.

Generally speaking, anything a Tribble can do (Klingon fetishism aside), a Guinea Pig can do better. For a more detailed comparison, please observe this article which goes into depth.
