I think this is only limited by the server hardware.

Does this software support all platform network devices?

Tftp is an industry standard, so it should support the main guys like Cisco, Dell, HP, Nortel, etc.

What is the recommended hardware to support for 1300 network devices?

As mentioned above the better the server the more devices it should be able to handle.

Where are the backed up configurations files gets stored. Is it stored locally in the server?

I think this is locally on the server, but most tftp tools allow you to pick where you want to store or source the transferred configs.
