These manufacturers don't usually allow to use memory or disks from other companies, there are active checks in the bios against it. But there are some exceptions, sometimes modules from Kingston and likes are accepted. There's a problem with loosing warranty by using other companies memory/disk.

RAM/CPU don't make a difference to this kind of software, it's more based on

1) management subsystem abilities: every server has it's own proprietary type of card management subsystem (ILO for HP, RSA for IBM, RMC for Fujtisu). These subsystems not only allow to work remotely on console, but also have monitoring abilites (temperatures, hardware events etc.) that monitoring software can use.

2) Software agents installed in the operating system - main management/monitoring functionality is here. They checks if the server has BIOS/motherboard from the manufacturer.
