Maximum file size = smallest disk?

I have a lab cluster with 6 nodes, each with 3 50 GB "disks" (vmware) allocated as raw storage, so 150GB per datanode and 900GB total.  Replication factor is set to 3.

I've noticed that attempting to cp or rsync files onto the NFS gateway breaks if the write goes to any disk that has less free space available than the size of the file I'm attempting to copy onto it.

Am I correct in assuming that mapr will not span multiple disks in a large file write?  Am I therefore constrained to file sizes smaller than the smallest free space available on any disk in the pool at the time of the write?

How would I work around this problem?
