In a particular embodiment, a multi-path bridge circuit includes a backplane input/output (I/O) interface to couple to a local backplane having at least one communication path to a processing node and includes at least one host interface adapted to couple to a corresponding at least one processor. The multi-path bridge circuit further includes logic adapted to identify two or more communication paths through the backplane interface to a destination memory, to divide a data block stored at a source memory into data block portions, and to transfer the data block portions in parallel from the source memory to the destination node via the identified two or more communication paths.
