-Question about writing HDFS files

I seem to recall reading that when a MapReduce task writes a file, the blocks of the file are always written to local disk, and replicated to other nodes. If this is true, is this also true for non-MR applications writing to HDFS from Hadoop worker nodes? What about clients outside of the cluster doing a file load?
