I have a bunch of files at Cloud Storage that I need to parse and insert 
into Cloud SQL once per day.
The operation takes about an hour on a n1-standard-2 instance, and then 
~10mins to insert the data into Cloud SQL.

My idea of design to solve this problem with GAE is:

   1. Define a scheduled task in GAE, it does a HTTP request to a URL
   2. Create a URL handler that can respond to the HTTP req mentioned above 
   in GAE, it’s main task would be to boot a GCE instance
   3. The GCE instance would be based on a template where it does a few 
   things automatically at boot:
      1. Download the file from Cloud Storage
      2. Parses it
      3. Inserts the data into Cloud SQL
      4. Shuts down

Would this be the best design to solve the problem?
