Lets break down a part number to easily understand

WU = Western Digital Ultrastar
H= Helim ( S = Standard) All the drives from 1 to 8 tb ( and new 10TB AIR) have S. 12,14 TB have H to denote helium platform
72= 7200 RPM
1414 = 14TB full capacity , 14TB capacity of this model. ( 1412 would mean 14 full capacity and 12tb capacity of this model)
AL = generation, height
42= interface. (52 = 512e SAS, E6= 512e SATA, N6= 4kn SATA, 42 = 4Kn SAS)
0 = power Diable
5 = Encryption ( 1 = TCG, 4 = Secure Erase, 5 = TCG/FIPS)

What is the relation between WD ultrastar and HGST/Hitachi Ultrastar

WD Acquired HGST( Hitachi Global Data Systems) Ultrastar in 2012. All the Ultrastar Drives are now sold as WD ultrastar instead of HGST Ultrastar.

What is the difference between WD Gold and WD Ultrastar drives, they are both Enterprise drives.

WD Gold is Enterprise Class but geared towards the channel sales. For large project and implementations, Ultrastar is more suitable becuase of following reasons
1. Ultrastar Is Available in SAS and SATA. Gold is available only in SATA
2. Ultastar can be ordred in 512e, 512n ( in lower caps) and 4Kn . Gold format is fixed and can't be changed ( 512n/512e)
3. Ultrastar Can be had in TCG, SE, FIPS encryptions unlike Gold.
