A distributed file does have two parts on UV.  The file is created at the unix level as a directory with files DATA.30 and OVER.30.  I always thought that as long as neither the DATA.30 or OVER.30 exceeded 2gig, life was good.

Actually, a DISTRIBUTED file is largely a logical construct.  It is a
collection of normal files under the umbrella of a master logical file.
The components of the DISTRIBUTED file (also called a PART file) can be
any hashed file type.

The file type that has DATA.30 and OVER.30 is a DYNAMIC file.
