Obviously having more vCPU's (virtual CPU's) and more RAM by them self won't be able to alone help stop and/or prevent a DDoS attack, but let's say after a DDoS attack is finished and/or slowing down would having more vCPU's and RAM dedicated to a server help recover from the attack faster?

    It depends. Some attacks work by tying up ports on the machine by opening sockets and then sending nothing. More CPU and RAM may not help with this. But in a “cloud” environment a load balancer might help, even with only one machine behind it. – nbering Oct 30 '18 at 12:03
