    'host' => env('REDIS_HOST', '127.0.0.1'),
    'password' => env('REDIS_PASSWORD', null),
    'port' => env('REDIS_PORT', '6379'),
    'database' => env('REDIS_DB', '0'),
    'options' => [
        'compression' => Redis::COMPRESSION_NONE,
    ],
],

You can use any of the Redis compressions available from you installation:
Redis::COMPRESSION_NONE, Redis::COMPRESSION_ZSTD, Redis::COMPRESSION_LZ4
