Currently i use AWS ELB --single instances do deploy & manage multiple versions of the same nodejs app (over 10), which differ only by the configuration. Each app is running some endless process 24/7. I want to be able to manage (start/stop/update) them separately and efficiently. Currently it's very easy to do so with elb deploy command.

However, the costs went seriously up lately (while the load increased just by 10-20%). About half of the cost is the data transfer and 40% is the EC2 instances themselves (t2.nano).

Would the use of Google Cloud be more cost efficient? and more importantly, is there a similar way do deploy and manage 10x instances of the same app? Sure when i finish reading all the docs, i might have an idea, but hoping to get some advise about the direction of research or probably about the solution itself.

you can try google cloud run. here you can run containerized applications on a fully managed serverless platform. You might have to containerize your application. But it can help you reduce the cost as the min container can be 0 (zero) and if any to your app is there cloud run can automatically scale to meet the demand.
