Yes, following are SysAdmins – System administrators. IT pros. The IT guy (or gal). Techies. They have many names. IT Pros are IT Administrators who don’t want to do coding (by choice).

IT Pros are part of operations teams. They love to manage Server, Cloud Servers, Cloud Services, Cloud Storage, SaaS applications, Databases, Network Environment (Firewalls, Routers, Proxy, and Switches), Desktops, Laptops, Mobile, Security, and on-prem Applications. They are the folks who do design & architecture of Data Centers, Applications, Network Infrastructure, Server Infrastructure, etc.
