While a tax law prompted Microsoft to move its cloud business Azure out of Washington state, the state just attracted a software company, VMWare, to build its data center in Wenatchee.

VMWare, a software company and Microsoft competitor in Palo Alto, Calif., opened a 61,000-square-foot data center in Wenatchee in January to consolidate several smaller labs and data centers the company was using to run and test its virtualization software. The company's chief executive officer Paul Maritz, is a former top exeuctive at Microsoft.
