Laravel - Redis - The Redis Facade Alias

Laravel's config/app.php configuration file contains an aliases array which defines all of the class aliases that will be registered by the framework. For convenience, an alias entry is included for each facade offered by Laravel; however, the Redis alias is disabled because it conflicts with the Redis class name provided by the phpredis extension. If you are using the Predis client and would like to enable this alias, you may un-comment the alias in your application's config/app.php configuration file.
