"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try contacting WD themselves?  

Otherwise a potential alternative:

These drives will only be available with host management, which means it will not be available to general consumers, but only to select customers of HGST.

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

You might be able to get one from Dell, part number 67YT7 but it's limited to 512e and SATA, firmware will probably be tweaked.
Davis McCarnOwnerCommented:
You should also be strongly cautioned that, unless you have the correct firmware which is custom to each manufacturer's server line, the drive will just sit there and look at you stupid.  Lenovo/IBM drives must have their custom firmware, HP's their custom firmware, etc.
You really better be looking for the OEM part number you need.

Lenovo/IBM* don't tweak their drive firmware, they even run generic code on the LSI controllers, Dell don't either although they set a code page for Dell certified disks. HPE is the worst offender on that score.

*x86 IBM/Lenovo servers with LSI controllers, totally different kettle of fish with IBM SANs, they are heavily branded and won't accept generic disks but Dell normally work with anything.
